Abstract: It is common knowledge that leverage can increase the potential returns of an investment, at the expense of increased risk. For a passive investor in the stock market, leverage can be achieved using margin debt or leveraged-ETFs. We perform bootstrapped Monte-Carlo simulations of leveraged (and unleveraged) mixed portfolios of stocks and bonds, based on past stock market data, and show that leverage can amplify the potential returns, without significantly increasing the risk for long-term investors.
