FTAG Fund Description

FTAG tracks a global, market-cap-weighted index of firms engaged in improving agricultural yields.

FTAG Factset Analytics Insight

FTAG provides cap-weighted access to firms that produce chemicals and fertilizers, seeds, irrigation equipment and farm machinery. The portfolio also includes farmland companies, a unique feature in the global agriculture space. FTAG looks somewhat expensive next to its peers.Before December 2015, FTAG tracked a completely unrelated index of platinum miners under a different fund name and ticker (PLTM). In its previous incarnation, the fund tracked poorly and didn't catch on with investors. PLTM’s very small asset base was ported over to FTAG.
