UCI Fund Description

UCI tracks an index of 28 commodities. It uses a set of five futures contracts of different maturities to maintain exposure to each commodity.

UCI Factset Analytics Insight

UCI attempts to provide diversified exposure to a large basket of commodities by weighting each commodity sector by "economic importance" and each commodity by consumption. As a result, the ETN underweights our benchmark's heavy allocation to energy in favor of more evenly distributed sector weights. The most striking difference is a large allocation to industrial metals, but UCI overall offers a relatively balanced portfolio. It attempts to beat contango by using up to five different futures contracts for each commodity, rather than simply one front-month contract, and by continuously rolling its exposure. UCI is a reasonably priced ETN that may need some care to trade, but is overall a viable choice for commodity exposure. Note: UCIB, a B series version of the ETN, launched in Oct. 2015. It tracks the same index but its liquidity may differ.
