Fund aim

The L&G Multi Strategy Enhanced Commodities UCITS ETF (the "ETF") aims to track the performance of the Barclays Backwardation Tilt Multi-Strategy Capped Total Return Index (the “Index”).

  • Broad commodities exposure

Basket of commodity futures with dynamically determined expiry dates

  • Diversification

Commodities are a distinct asset class with returns that are largely independent of stock and bond returns

  • Inflation hedge

Commodity indices tend to benefit from rising inflation

Barclays Backwardation Tilt Multi-Strategy Capped Total Return

The Index provides broad-based exposure to commodities via a diversified basket of commodity futures with different expiry dates of up to 1 year, selecting specific contracts based on shape of the futures curve or other idiosyncratic properties.

The Index provides a return equivalent to a fully “collateralised” investment in a diversified portfolio of commodity “futures contracts” across the following sectors: (1) Energy; (2) Industrial metals; (3) Precious metals; (4) Agriculture; and (5) Livestock.

The Index return is comprised of: (1) the "spot" return which reflects the day-to-day changes in the prices of the commodity futures contracts; (2) the "roll" return associated with periodically selling the futures contracts that are nearing their expiry dates with later dated equivalents in order to maintain exposure to the commodity futures on an ongoing basis); and (3) the "collateral" return which reflects the interest that a commodity investor would earn where they deposit with a bank (for safe keeping) the cash that they will need to settle the contract at the future delivery date.

Key risks

The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up. You may not get back the amount you originally invested.

Past performance is not a guide to the future.

An investment in the ETF involves a significant degree of risk. Any decision to invest should be based on the information contained in the relevant prospectus. Prospective investors should obtain their own independent accounting, tax and legal advice and should consult their own professional advisers to ascertain the suitability of the ETF as an investment.

Market trading in commodity futures contracts can be extremely “volatile”. This means that the prices of the futures contracts comprised in the Index may fluctuate rapidly based on numerous factors, including supply and demand relationships, weather, agriculture, trade, economic or political events, technological developments, interest rates and governmental policies.

If a swap counterparty is no longer willing or able to continue entering into swaps with the ETF, the ETF will not be able to continue tracking the Index.

If a swap counterparty increases the cost of entering into swaps with the ETF, the ETF’s performance will be negatively impacted.

Third party service providers (such as swap counterparties or the ETF’s depositary) may go bankrupt and fail to pay money due to the ETF or return property belonging to the ETF.

If the Index provider stops calculating the Index or if the ETF’s license to track the Index is terminated, the ETF may have to be closed.

It may not always be possible to buy and sell ETF shares on a stock exchange or at prices closely reflecting the NAV.

There is no capital guarantee or protection on the value of the ETF. Investors can lose all the capital invested in the ETF.

Please refer to the “Risk Factors” section of the Issuer’s Prospectus and the Fund Supplement.
