Commodity ETN Spotlight: DPU In Focus

Exchange-traded products have become the preferred instrument for many investors looking to add core, as well as tactical, commodities exposure to their portfolios. Investors can choose from an ever-expanding “toolbox” for the right instrument that suits their needs, with some funds focusing in on a specific commodity, while others offer broad-based exposure. One of the offerings in the space is the PowerShares DB Commodity Long ETN (DPU), which has accumulated close to $6 million in assets under management since launching in April of 2008 [see also 12 High-Yielding Commodities For 2012]. DPU tracks the Deutsche Bank Liquid Commodity Index, which gives investors access to a basket of six very different commodities, resulting in a unique risk/return profile that may appeal to some more than others.
