Commodities ETFs

Hi there!

I’m unable to find any commodities etfs in your platform. If there isn’t any, are there plans to include them in the future?

Many thanks,

Hi @clope,
We do already have some commodities ETFs (or ETCs as they’re sometimes called) on the platform, focusing on precious metals (I’ve listed them below).

Can I ask were any specific commodities /funds you were looking for?
Some of the commodity funds focusing on oil or grain etc often rely on forward contracts and aren’t always suitable for long term investing. But we’ll certainly have a look at any funds you’re interested in.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your reply,

My question was in regards of ETFs like GSG or CMDY (both iShares) in order to boost diversification of portfolios,

Have a good day!

@clope - I spoke with our investment team about these…

They flagged that it’s currently very difficult to track a commodity basket-like S&P GCSI (tracked by GSG) without using derivatives. Most of these commodity ETFs do not take physical delivery (except those Gold and silver ETFs we already have).

Using derivatives/rolling forward contracts makes them problematic for long term investing. It’s one of the main reasons we haven’t added them. Thanks for raising it thought - it’s helpful to understand the demand for these & we’ll continue to look at them as we expand.
