GraniteShares S&P GSCI Commodity Broad Strategy No K-1 ETF (COMG) ETF Bio
The GraniteShares S&P GSCI Commodity Broad Strategy No K-1 ETF is actively managed, but in practice, is mostly a passive fund. The futures portion of the portfolio, up to 25%, is held in a subsidiary based in the Cayman Islands and generally reflects the index, while the collateral is held in a cash portfolio holding fixed-income securities that is managed stateside. The S&P GSCI covers 22 different commodities via 24 futures contracts and weights its components based on global production values relative to the importance of the respective physical commodities to the global economy. Its components are weighted based on a combination of liquidity and production data and diversification requirements. In addition to offering the opportunity to generate added income via the cash portfolio, the structure allows the funds to register as 1940 Act funds and, unlike older futures-based commodity ETFs, there is no Schedule K-1 tax form associated with the funds.
