ETCs provide access to Rogers International Commodity Enhanced Indices (RICI) commodity index family
Eight new exchange traded commodities (ETCs) issued by BNP Paribas Arbitrage Issuance B.V. are tradable on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt since yesterday, Deutsche Börse AG announced.
The ETCs give investors access to the performance of industrial and precious metals as well as to the energy sector. The reference indices from the Rogers International Commodity Enhanced index family track the respective futures contracts with varying maturities. The limited term of the futures contracts requires a switch prior to expiry in exchange for a futures contract with the next expiry date (rollover). Possible rollover losses are minimised through an optimised procedure for selecting futures contracts. The indices are denominated in US dollars and rebalanced semi-annually.
Deutsche Börse’s product range in its ETF and ETP segment currently comprises 1,149 ETFs, 211 ETCs and 132 ETNs.
