The Commodities Fund aims to provide you with a diversified exposure to global commodities.
A simple way of obtaining commodities exposure
The fund uses financial derivatives fully backed by cash held by AMP Capital to obtain its commodity exposure. Investors gain exposure to and benefit from investment in underlying commodities without actually having to own them.
The commodities exposure is linked to the Bloomberg Commodities Index, which covers a broad basket of commodity futures encompassing agriculture, livestock, precious metals, industrial metals and energy. The fund offers a way to diversify away from traditional global markets, as commodities historically have a low correlation to shares and bonds.
Provides you with the opportunity to benefit from the expected long term return potential associated with global commodities. The investment takes advantage of market inefficiencies in the pricing structure of commodities futures, resulting in an expected modest excess return pick-up over the Bloomberg Commodities Index.
Currency managementThe principal is held in New Zealand dollars so foreign currency exposure is minimal.
