BDRY Factset Analytics Insight
BDRY is the first exchange-traded product to provide exposure to freight futures. Dry bulk carriers transport unpackaged dry cargo, such as iron ore, coal, and grain—distinct from tankers and containerized cargo ships. Dry bulk shipping is an instrumental part of the global commodity market, and historically has been uncorrelated with other major asset classes. BDRY provides exposure to the charter rate for dry bulk shipping through a portfolio of near-dated freight futures contracts on three dry bulk indices. The portfolio uses a fixed weighting scheme, rebalanced annually, based on the size categories of cargo ships—Capesize freight futures contracts get 50% weight, Panamax contracts 40%, and Supramax contracts 10%, rebalanced annually. Keep in mind that futures are always an imperfect proxy for spot market prices, and that the freight futures market is often in contango, so long-term holdings are subject to position decay. BDRY is structured as a commodities pool, so expect a K-1 at tax time. Long-term holders will be taxed on any gains even if they didn’t sell shares. The fund provides access to a niche market.
