GSG Fund Description

The iShares S&P GSCI Commodity-Indexed Trust uses index futures contracts to gain exposure to a production-weighted index of front-month commodities futures contracts.

GSG FactSet Analytics Insight

GSG, like two peers, tracks a version of theGSG is a heavy bet on energy holding long-dated futures contracts on the GSCI S&P GSCI. That means it's a heavy bet on energy, since roughly 70% of the S&P GSCI is allocated to energy commodities (including nearly 50% to WTI and Brent crude oil alone). GSG has over $750M in AUM and charges a reasonable fee. However, the fee advantage is muted based on its tracking record, likely due to its exposure method. Unlike other ETFs that track the GSCI, GSG does not hold contracts on the underlying constituents. Instead, it holds long-dated futures contracts on the GSCI itself. This produces small biases that show up in Fit, where it might otherwise score near perfectly because the GSCI index serves as our benchmark. Still, the fund offers a solid take on broad plain vanilla commodities in a large and liquid package. Expect a K-1 at tax time showing blended cap gains tax rates.
