Fund Summary and Key Points

The VanEck CM Commodity Index Fund (the "Fund") seeks to track, before fees and expenses, the UBS Constant Maturity Commodity Index (the “CMCI”). 

  • CMCI is a next-generation commodity index diversified across maturities, minimizing its exposure to the front end of the futures curves
  • By spreading its exposure across multiple maturities and maintaining a constant maturity per commodity, CMCI seeks to mitigate the impacts of negative roll yield in contango environments
  • Diversified across five commodity sectors and 29 commodity components; energy allocation typically around 35%
  • In contrast with many “enhanced” commodity funds, offers “pure” commodity exposure by investing in commodity-linked derivative instruments and more conservative fixed income securities, such as U.S. Treasury Bills
  • No K-1s – Access to commodities without burdensome K-1 tax reporting

Investment Approach

    • The Fund may invest in instruments linked to the value of a particular commodity or commodity futures contract, or a subset of commodities or commodity futures contracts, through a wholly owned subsidiary of the Fund formed in the Cayman Islands.
