Investing in commodities

Investing in commodities requires special skills and expertise. We'll provide access to the small universe of experienced managers we've identified as being capable of implementing these complex strategies.

Why choose Russell Investments for commodities investments?

Broad, global commodities investing—not just gold and oil

Adding commodities to a portfolio invested in stocks and bonds can help manage risk and potentially improve returns. 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.
