Agriculture Broad Market

Agriculture Broad Market
  • Pininvest Analysis

Each of the constituents of the Broad Agriculture theme must be evaluated on its own merits because of  wide differences any potential investor should take into account

  • a Buy & Hold investment strategy might be relevant in agribusiness ETFs (such as VanEck Vectors MOO/NYSEARCA but not for ETNs in crop Futures focused on the short term
  • considering liquidity, assets under management (AUM) differ vastly between the two volume leaders  - MOO/NYSEARCA and DBA/NYSEARCA - and alterative funds 10 to 15 times smaller
  • agribusiness ETFs invest in companies providing farm equipment, seeds, fertilizers and processing industries - all likely to be significantly less volatile than the crops themselves on world markets 

Offering clearly differentiated views on market trends in agribusiness and on the commodities markets , the funds should not be evaluated on past performance

Our ETF US Sectors themes present cross-sectional views of trends in each economic activity We hope to achieve a fair coverage of ETFs in each category, which is a work in progress

We do not receive any commission or other form of compensation from the providers included in our 'Funds' presentation
