Name: PowerShares Global Listed Private Equity Portfolio
Offered by PowerShares, this ETF tracks the Red Rocks Global Listed Private Equity Index, an index that tracks private equity companies, including BDCs, master limited partnerships (MLPs) and other vehicles whose principal business is to invest in, lend capital to or provide services to privately held companies.
Name: Global X SuperDividend Alternatives ETF

Other Exchange-Traded Choices:
ETN: ETRACS Exchange-Traded Note
Rather than being an ETF, this instrument is an ETN — an exchange-traded note as opposed to an exchange-traded fund. Offered by UBS, it is a note due April 26, 2041, designed to track an investment in the Wells Fargo Business Development Company Index, paying a variable coupon associated with the distributions declared by the components of the index, and with adjustments to the principal amount to reflect the price performance of the index.
ETN: 2x Leveraged ETRACS Exchange-Traded Note
Rather than being an ETF, this instrument is an ETN — an exchange-traded note as opposed to an exchange-traded fund. Offered by UBS, it is a note due May 25, 2041, designed to track a "2x leveraged long" investment in the Wells Fargo Business Development Company Index. It operates like the BDCS ETN, but applies 2x leverage.
