BCM iPath Pure Beta Broad Commodity ETN
What is BCM?
BCM tracks an index of commodities futures contracts whose tenors are chosen to mitigate the effects of contango.
BCM Factset Analytics Insight
BCM tries to beat the Barclays Commodity Index (BCI) by dynamically picking the futures contracts it uses to gain exposure to the BCI's commodities. The BCI weights its holdings based on liquidity, and caps the weight of commodity sectors at 35% and commodity groups (i.e., energy, metals, softs) at 20%. BCM has a unique basket and dynamic contract picking strategy. In contrast to BCI which rolls its exposure to the futures contracts on a monthly basis in accordance with a pre-determined roll schedule, BCM uses a quantitative approach to generate commodity returns by choosing a point on the futures curve that is intended to be more representative of commodities market.
