Long-Short ETFs

Long-Short ETFs may at times hold both long and short positions across various asset classes. These ETFs can be market neutral, thereby equally splitting exposure between long and short positions, or they may split exposure disproportionately depending on the underlying objective of the fund such as 130/30 ETFs.
