This ETP seeks to replicate an index which is comprised of a basket of exchange traded futures contracts. The underlying index is designed to reflect the performance of a portfolio of copper futures contracts, diversified across multiple maturities, fully collateralized with 3-month U.S. Treasury Bills. CPER utilizes a unique roll methodology in an effort to maximize backwardation and minimize the potentially adverse effects of contango; it selects futures contracts in liquid positions alog the futures curve as it deems necessary. Copper is one of the oldest metals, having been used as currency more than ten thousand years ago. Copper has also been instrumental in the development of human civilization, playing a key role in various developments throughout history. Copper’s widespread use has not diminished; it is still one of the most widely-used industrial metals, a key component of construction activity and other industrial uses around the globe. It has also become popular as an investable asset, acting as both a potential inflation hedge as well as an opportunity to profit from increased demand for raw materials from emerging markets. CPER could be an effective tool for achieving exposure to this industrial metal, although investors should consider the nearly identical JJC and CUPM, both of which are cheaper alternatives.
