Skyrocketing commodity prices combined with the poor performance of equities have led to an increased interest in commodity allocations. Commodities have not historically been part of an institutional investor’s asset allocation, and some even question whether commodities are an asset class.
Register now to join us for a live webinar to discuss commodities as an institutional asset class with senior research analyst Eric Przybylinski and Greg Leonberger, our director of research. We'll explore commodities as an investment, focusing on investment vehicles, the sources and attributes of historical risk and return, and commodities’ place in an investment portfolio.
We'll brief participants on key points from our newly published position paper, including:
* An introduction to commodities as an institutional asset class
* The mechanics of long-only futures positions
* Drivers of individual commodity returns and portfolios of commodity positions
* Commodities as part of a balanced portfolio
