Investment Objective

Schroders commodities strategy aims to outperform the Bloomberg Commodity Index (BCOM TR) with a lower level of volatility.


Schroders began managing commodities in October 2005. The strategy is managed by a dedicated team based in London and supported by the global resources of the entire Schroders group. The investment opportunity set includes more than 60 commodities and the strategy invests in both commodity futures, commodity swaps and commodity-related equities. Rigorous risk controls place strict limits on the maximum exposure to any single commodity as well as to sector, instrument and cash. Cash/collateral positions are solely invested in US Treasury Bills with less than 12 months maturity.
