Commodities ETFs cross-section and key drivers
  • Pininvest Analysis

By no means exhaustive, our weighted selection (to be reviewed monthly) signals commodity trends in all major segments

Metals have delivered an average return of 30% in 2017 – the outlook remains positive but the positions are initiated underweight at 22% of total portfolio

Energy was shrouded with uncertainty after a disappointing 2017 (6% for Oil and largely negative Natural Gas at -28%) and on à powerful upswing since the late '17; potential pick-up of natural gas will be discussed in our dedicated theme

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