SG to launch Footsie reverse tracker warrant

SG, the investment banking arm of Société Générale, will tomorrow launch warrants on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) that track the share prices of the UK’s top 100 companies but in reverse.

The FTSE 100 Reverse Tracker lets investors bet that the UK stock market is going to fall in value. For every 1% decrease in the FTSE 100 stock market index, the investment gains 1% in value.

“It provides investors with a unique and relevant investment product for today’s markets, and an additional way to hedge against further downside,” said David Lake, SG’s London-based head of listed products in the UK.

Retail investors can access LSE-listed warrants through their regular broker.
