ProShares Trust Expects Zero Capital Gain Distributions Across All ETFs

ProShares is the ETF Industry Leader in Tax Efficiency Over Past Decade

ProShares, a premier provider of ETFs, has announced that it expects none of its 120 ProShares Trust ETFs will pay a 2022 capital gain distribution. Over the past 10 years, ProShares Trust has made the fewest taxable capital gain distributions of any large ETF company.1

“A key reason investors are attracted to ETFs is tax efficiency, and over the last decade ProShares Trust tax efficiency is unmatched,” said Michael L. Sapir, co-founder and CEO of ProShare Advisors LLC. “We are pleased to expect that our shareholders will receive zero capital gain distributions across all our equity, fixed income and crypto-focused funds.”

Capital gain distributions will vary from year to year. This is not intended to be tax advice. ProShares does not offer tax advice, and you should consult your tax advisor.

About ProShares

The company is a leader in strategies such as dividend growth, rising rates, thematics, crypto and geared (leveraged and inverse) ETF investing. ProShares continues to innovate with products that provide strategic and tactical opportunities for investors to manage risk and enhance returns.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. ProShares are generally non-diversified and entail certain risks, including risk associated with the use of derivatives (swap agreements, futures contracts and similar instruments), imperfect benchmark correlation, leverage and market price variance, all of which can increase volatility and decrease performance.
