The diversity of these investment processes, which are both transparent and thorough, reflects THEAM’s extensive experience in this asset class and its commitment to its investors.

Investments for portfolio diversification and other benefits

This range enables you to gain indirect exposure to commodities via the derivatives markets in the form of relatively simple and liquid investment solutions. It can help increase portfolio diversification or offer you potential protection of your savings against inflation. Gaining indirect exposure to the commodities markets enables you to benefit from:

  • Exposure to global growth, regardless of the geographical breakdown
  • A wide variety of specific underlying assets. These assets are characterised by diversity (industrial metals, precious metals, energy markets etc.), and by miscellaneous fundamentals (including links to the economic cycle and production and storage costs)
  • Protection against inflation, and especially ‘unexpected’ inflation, which is explained by the key role in the economic cycle played by the underlying assets
  • A potential hedge against certain geopolitical risks due to the specific characteristics of commodities such as gold or crude oil
The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay, the fund described being in risk of capital loss
