Investors Are Piling Back into This Giant Japan Leveraged ETF

  • Nomura’s bullish Nikkei fund posted 10 times outflows of peers
  • Investors added $1 billion to inverse fund in past year period

The tide is turning again for one of Nomura Asset Management’s enormous exchange-traded funds, which has seen fund inflows pick up sharply in recent days after withdrawals in the past year dwarfed those of other Japanese ETFs.

In the past five trading days, net flows into the Next Funds Nikkei 225 Leveraged Index ETF total about 57.7 billion yen ($522 million). The fund relies on the Nikkei 225 Leveraged Index to deliver two times the daily returns of the Nikkei 225. The leveraged index is down 3.8 percent this year.
