Adding commodities to a portfolio invested in stocks and bonds can help manage risk and potentially improve returns.
Why invest in commodities?
Commodities cover a broad range of real assets, including live cattle, wheat, corn, soybeans, copper, aluminum, nickel, gold, oil and coffee. We offer global access to the dynamic growth of both the developed and developing markets.
Long-term return potential through active management
Active managers can try to outperform passive indexes by using opportunistic "roll-timing strategies" around the index commodity roll periods (delaying the purchase or sale a few days after the index trades), over or under-weighting sectors or individual commodities, buying commodities that aren't in the index and other active strategies to take advantage of potential mispricing opportunities.
We recognize the money we manage represents the hard work and savings of real people like you. Or, if you represent a non-profit organization, the money needs to be there in the long run to fulfill important missions. We understand what's at stake. That's why we work to deliver real, lasting value. And that's why we're committed to our purpose: improving financial security for people.
