While we do not deal in commodities, there are Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) which offer real estate investment trusts (REITs), and natural resources such as oil and coal. Precious metals like gold and sliver can also be held through funds like these. This can add additional diversity for some investors.
Funds containing certain tangibles offer investors with more complex investing needs, a way to potentially profit from both the upward and downward movement of commodity and financial markets.
Because the commodities markets can be highly unpredictable — often swinging dramatically — commodity index funds are not suitable for all investors. Before starting, consider your:
- Financial experience
- Investment goals
- Risk tolerance
- Financial resources
If investing in commodities has the potential to fit into your investment strategies, and your Financial Advisor does not trade in commodity index funds, come talk to us. We can help you invest in this highly specialized niche.
