Teucrium Trading Files For ETFs in Sugar, Soybeans, Wheat, Crude Oil and Natural Gas
Teucrium Trading LLC (Teucrium) announced the filing with the SEC of registration statements for five new single-commodity Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). These ETFs intend to use the proceeds from the offering of their shares to offer investors and hedgers exposure exclusively to Sugar, Soybeans, and/or Wheat. Additionally, the ETFs are intended to offer single-commodity exposure to WTI Crude Oil and Natural Gas. Each single-commodity ETF was developed by Teucrium.
“By filing registration statements for these five single-commodity ETFs, three of which are intended to offer individual exposure to these agricultural commodities, we are trying to break new ground”
The agricultural ETFs, all intended to be launched on the NYSE Arca are: Teucrium Sugar Fund (symbol “CANE”); Teucrium Soybean Fund (symbol “SOYB”); and Teucrium Wheat Fund (symbol “WEAT”). These agricultural ETFs will be joined by Teucrium WTI Crude Oil Fund (symbol “CRUD”) and Teucrium Natural Gas Fund (symbol “NAGS”).
Teucrium designs next-generation commodity investment products in the ETF format, designed to be highly liquid and well-accepted by investors. These proposed Teucrium Funds are anticipated to join the recently launched Teucrium Corn Fund. Each is designed to offer investors and hedgers liquidity, transparency and capacity in single-commodity ETF products. ETFs are transparent because holdings are disclosed daily on a website and liquid because they can be traded throughout the market day.
“By filing registration statements for these five single-commodity ETFs, three of which are intended to offer individual exposure to these agricultural commodities, we are trying to break new ground,” said Sal Gilbertie, Founder and President of Teucrium Trading LLC. “We design all of our ETFs for real exposure to the underlying commodity itself.”
Gilbertie said all five of these ETFs have been designed to incorporate Teucrium’s unique approach to tracking the price of the underlying commodity. “I believe our differentiation in the marketplace starts with our team’s ability to design products based on our expertise and commodities-trading experience,” he said. “We design our ETFs to offer investors and hedgers simple and efficient single-commodity ETF products that are intended to closely track each index, after fees.”
Teucrium Trading LLC intends to be the premier issuer of next-generation commodity ETFs, designed to offer simplicity, liquidity, transparency and capacity in single-commodity investing to investors and hedgers, in the ETF format that is generally viewed as being highly liquid and well-accepted by the investment community. Within today’s ever-evolving commodity markets landscape, Teucrium believes that its team has the ability to design ETFs based on its expertise and commodities-trading experience that are intended to provide clear and liquid tracking to the underlying commodity price, without the use of leverage.
Teucrium has filed a registration statement for each ETF (including a prospectus) with the SEC for the offerings to which this communication relates, but that, with the exception of the Teucrium Corn Fund, have not yet become effective.
The five new funds for which registration statements have been filed with the SEC – Teucrium Sugar Fund (NYSE:CANE), Teucrium Soybean Fund (NYSE:SOYB), Teucrium Wheat Fund (NYSE:WEAT), Teucrium WTI Crude Oil Fund (NYSE:CRUD), and Teucrium Natural Gas Fund (NYSE:NAGS) – have been filed with the SEC. The SEC’s website on which the registration statements were filed can be accessed through www.sec.gov.
Commodities and futures generally are volatile and are not suitable for all investors.
The Teucrium Corn Fund and the other five ETFs for which registration statements have been filed with the SEC are not mutual funds or any other type of Investment Company within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and are not subject to regulation thereunder.
Shares of the TEUCRIUM Corn Fund are not FDIC insured, may lose value and have no bank guarantee.
