Commodities, often known as the raw materials for production processes, are utilised by investors for the inflation hedging and diversification benefits that they can offer portfolios, through their negative correlation to stocks and bonds. Through an ETF, investors can gain exposure to both single commodities and commodity-linked indices which offer a broad basket of exposures, often, but not always, through futures contracts. Investors can now get exposure to a broad range of commodities ETFs from oil and natural gas to precious metals and agricultural goods, they can be constructed to match an investor’s specific risk and return profile.
