Fund Objective
Commodity Strategies has developed an ECI programme benchmarked against a 50% blend of the CRB Index and the GS Commodity Index. The ECI uses fixed weightings, based on the benchmark, for 24 diverse commodities to provide stable, long term diversification to conventional equity portfolios. It has equity-like returns with no correlation to other asset classes, and has been designed to outperform the benchmark over any five year period.
Fund Strategy
The ECI is a fully automated, non-discretionary investment process capitalising on the fundamentals associated with the way commodities are stored and valued, not market inefficiencies. A daily automated quantitative investment process evaluates each commodity in the portfolio to determine whether storing a commodity is likely to be a cost or a benefit. Commodity exposure which is determined to be a cost is allocated to high quality fixed interest investments.
