iShares Commodities Funds

Moving Beyond Stocks and Bonds

Investing in commodities can help increase portfolio diversification and hedge against inflation. With iShares commodities ETFs, investors can either invest in the physical asset, get exposure to a broad basket of commodities or invest in the stocks of commodity producers.

  • Invest in the Physical Asset

    With precious metals, investors own the physical asset which provides pure exposure to the day-to-day movement in the price of the commodity.

  • Invest in a Broad Basket of Commodities

    iShares' diversified commodity ETFs offer a broad mix of commodity exposures including metals, energy and agriculture in a single fund.

  • Invest in Companies that Produce Commodities

    Obtain targeted exposure to stocks of metal, mining or energy producers.
