Large Cap Core Plus - CSM Large Cap Core Plus

ProShares Large Cap Core Plus seeks investment results, before fees and expenses, that track the performance of the Credit Suisse 130/30 Large Cap Index.

ProShares Large Cap Core Plus (CSM) is a multi-factor ETF that has outperformed the S&P 500 since its inception nine years ago, and has done so on a consistent basis.

  • Outperformance is rare in large cap. Ninety-five percent of active funds failed to beat the S&P 500 over time, and most passive strategies are designed only to match market returns. But CSM has beaten the S&P 500 in 3-year, 5-year and since-inception trailing periods.
  • Consistent outperformance is even rarer. CSM has outpaced the S&P 500 in 100% of rolling five-year periods, and its record of besting the S&P 500 on a month-over-month basis surpasses 97% of all large-cap mutual funds and ETFs.
  • CSM is built on a disciplined, multi-factor approach. One of the longest-running smart beta funds, CSM’s strategy combines multiple well-established factors to achieve performance. The result is a portfolio designed to turn incremental returns over time into consistent outperformance.
