BCI Fund Description

The ETFS Bloomberg All Commodity K-1 Free Strategy ETF seeks to outperform a broad-market commodity index through the active management of the fund’s collateral. The index includes 26 commodity futures with maturities of 1-3 months.

BCI Factset Analytics Insight

Actively managed BCI is best thought of as an index-tracking fund with an active overlay. The fund generally follows its benchmark—the Bloomberg Commodity Index—but attempts to boost returns through the active management of the fund’s collateral. The index includes up to 26 commodity futures contracts in the agriculture, energy, livestock, and metals sectors. Futures positions are weighted 2/3 by trading volume and 1/3 by world production. The index rebalances each January with weight-caps applied at the commodity, sector, and group levels. Contract tenor selection is determined by a set roll schedule that varies by commodity. BCI’s active manager invests the fund’s collateral in cash and short-term, highly rated corporate and government debt.BCI is organized as an open-ended ETF, rather than a commodity pool, so taxable investors pay the usual long- and short-term capital gains rates on sale and avoid receiving an annual K-1 tax form. The fund manages this feat by gaining its commodity exposure through a wholly owned Cayman Islands subsidiary, a common structure in the commodity ETF space.
