The iPath® Pure Beta S&P GSCI®-Weighted ETN is designed to provide investors with exposure to the Barclays Pure Beta Series-2 Total Return Index. The Barclays Pure Beta Series-2 Total Return Index (the "Index") is comprised of a basket of exchange traded futures contracts and reflects the returns potentially available through an unleveraged investment in futures contracts on the physical commodities comprising the S&P GSCI® Total Return Index. For each commodity, the Index may roll into one of a number of futures contracts with varying expiration dates, as selected using the Barclays Pure Beta Series 2 Methodology.
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the DJ-UBS Commodity Index Total Return Index. The index measures the collateralized returns from a basket of 19 commodity futures contracts representing the energy, precious metals, industrial metals, grains, softs and livestock sectors. In addition, the index is rebalanced once a year to ensure that no commodity sector may constitute more than 33% of the index as of the date of such rebalancing.
The investment seeks to track the price and performance yield, before fees and expenses, of the UBS Bloomberg Constant Maturity Commodity index. The fund is designed to be a diversified benchmark for commodities as an asset class. The index is comprised of 28 futures contracts with up to five different maturities for each individual commodity.

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.
