ETF Securities lists commodity funds on London Stock Exchange

ETF Securities has today listed two commodities ETFs on the London Stock Exchange.

Inflows to commodity ETPs in Europe stand at $6.3bn year to date as investors seek a hedge against inflation and uncorrelated returns, ETF Securities’ Howie Li says.

The ETFS All Commodities GO UCITS ETF tracks an index of front month commodity futures and may be used as a tactical play, a core diversifier or part of an allocation to an alternatives portfolio.

The ETFS Longer Dated All Commodities Ex-Agriculture And Livestock GO UCITS ETF tracks an index of longer-dated commodity futures on energy and metals without an allocation to food-related commodities.

Li says knowledge of the longer-term benefits as well as the understanding of uncorrelated risk contribution by commodities has increased.

In February, the Source Bloomberg Commodity Ucits ETF hit $1bn a month after launch.
