PowerShares Files For An Active Diversified Commodity Fund


Nearly 8 years after the launch of the PowerShares DB Commodity Tracking Fund (DBC), the firm filed paperwork for an actively managed version of the fund, offering exposure to a diversified set of commodities through futures contracts.

By investing in 14 heavily traded sectors of the commodity market, this fund hopes to hedge against individual sector falls, creating consistent return for investors.

DBC is down about 7.5% this year as equities stole the spotlight in 2013, but with $5.5 billion in assets under management it has considerable stability and did exceedingly well in years where equities fell.

Other broad commodity ETFs: DJP, GSG, RJI, GCC, USCI, CFD, CTF, RGRC, GSC, LSC, GSP, DEE, DDP, DYY, DJCI, CMD, BCM, UCI, UCD, SBV, CMDT, DPU, FTGC, CSCR, CSCB
