ETFs - Commodities

This page contains a list of each of the commodities based ETFs listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, along with a link to the details of each fund.

Why invest in commodities?

The most common reason investors like to hold commodities is because commodities have low correlation with other asset classes. This means that when share prices or fixed interest markets are falling, commodities are less likely to be impacted.

Another reason might be your view of a particular commodity - like crude oil for instance. You might believe the price is too low right now, or that global demand for oil will mean ongoing price growth for oil. An ETF gives you exposure to the price of the undelying asset.
