VEGI Fund Description

VEGI tracks a market-cap-weighted index of companies that are sensitive to agricultural commodity prices.

VEGI Factset Analytics Insight

VEGI is one of the best funds for capturing the global agriculture space. The fund is slightly more concentrated at the top, with over 20% of its portfolio in Monsanto and Syngenta AG, and thus tilts slightly larger. It charges the lowest expense ratio in the segment—just 0.39%—but its asset base is still small at $45 million. On most days, less than $250K changes hands and spreads are wide. VEGI has strong underlying liquidity, so large investors should be able to get in and out easily, but smaller investors will need to trade carefully.
