Note that some of the funds above are exchange traded notes (ETNs), which are dependent upon the credit of the underlying bank; ETNs are a structured note, created as a senior debt note by a bank. This means if the bank goes under, you’ll have to get in line with the other creditors. Also, the ETN tracking error is paid for by the issuer, not the investor. [Differences between ETFs and ETNs.]
