Fund and Collateral Structure  

Replicating Exposure to Commodities Through a Swap 

The fund aims to track the Enhanced Roll Commodity Index (the “Index”) by holding a portfolio of short-terms US T-Bills and achieving exposure to commodities by entering into unfunded swap arrangements (“Swaps”) with highly rated swap counterparties. The Fund’s portfolio is composed of:

  -  A portfolio of 91-day US T-Bills acquired with subscription proceeds 

 -  Swaps, passing the performance of the Index (from swap counterparties to Fund if performance is positive, the other way around if negative)

                                                                                   Structure Diagram


Counterparty Risk Management

Counterparty risk is managed mainly through the daily exchange of collateral between the fund and the swap provider(s). The value of the collateral required is based on a daily calculation of counterparty exposure using the prior day’s mark-to-market of the Swaps and any unsettled cash flowing between the fund and the swap provider.

Assets posted as collateral may only include cash (US Dollars only) or government bonds of US, UK, France or Germany, with a minimum rating of AA-/Aa3 (“eligible collateral assets”). When valuing the bonds posted as collateral, a haircut is applied to each bond's value based on the issuing country and the bond's maturity, as specified in the following table. Applying a haircut to the value of eligible collateral typically results in the collateral value exceeding the counterparty exposure and in any exposure being “over-collateralised”.

Optimised Roll Commodity Total Return Index

The Index is a US Dollar denominated index whose main objective is to provide a broad and diversified UCITS compliant commodity exposure, covering four broad commodity sectors: Energy, Agriculture, Industrial Metals and Precious Metals. The Index uses futures to track the performance of the individual constituents of the Bloomberg Commodity Index TR (a basket of 22 commodities).The Index employs a rule based approach for each of its components when it 'rolls' from one futures contract to another for each commodity in the Index. Rather than selecting the new future based on a predefined schedule (e.g. monthly) the Index rolls to the future which generates the maximum implied roll yield. The Index aims to maximise the potential roll benefits in backwardated markets and minimise the loss from rolling down the curve in contango markets.
