UNG Fund Description

The United States Natural Gas Fund holds near-month futures contracts in natural gas and swaps on natural gas.

UNG Factset Analytics Insight

UNG dominates the natural gas space, holding several times more assets than all other competitors combined. It offers straightforward exposure to front-month natural gas futures, rolling expiring front-month contracts to the next-nearest month. This method increases the sensitivity to underlying gas prices and to the shape of the futures curve, the same as our benchmark. The fund leads its segment in liquidity, with high volume, tight spreads, and low transaction costs for those dealing in bulk. Its expenses are a bit high, but that buys access to a giant of the natural gas futures market.
