The investment seeks to track changes, whether positive or negative, in the level of the DBIQ Diversified Agriculture Index Excess Return™, or the index, over time, plus the excess, if any, of the sum of the fund’s Treasury Income and Money Market Income over the expenses of the fund. The index, which is comprised of one or more underlying commodities, or index Commodities, is intended to reflect the agricultural sector.
The investment seeks to track the price and performance yield, before fees and expenses, of the UBS Bloomberg CMCI Food Total Return index. The fund is designed to be representative of the entire liquid forward curve of each commodity in the index. The index measures the collateralized returns from a diversified basket of agriculture and livestock futures contracts. It is comprised of the 11 agriculture futures contracts and two livestock futures contracts included in the CMCI with three target maturities for each individual commodity.
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the Barclays Capital Cotton Pure Beta TR index. The index is comprised of a single exchange traded futures contract, except during the roll period when it may be comprised of two futures contracts. However, unlike many commodity indices which roll their exposure to the corresponding futures contract on a monthly basis in accordance with a pre-determined roll schedule, the index may roll into one of a number of futures contracts with varying expiration dates, as selected using the Barclays Capital Pure Beta Series 2 Methodology.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
