List of 18 New Commodity ETFs That Launched In 2012

Jared Cummans: This year marked somewhat of a slowdown for the ETF industry as only 174 new funds were brought to market; 2011 saw more than 300 fund introductions and 2010 saw over 200. But this could also just be a sign that the exchange-traded world has reached a maturity point, and there simply is no need for a massive wave of new products year after year. In 2012, we saw plenty of innovation, with a number of unique products that offer strategies that can be found nowhere else in the investing world, especially on the commodity side of the equation.

Below, we outline the 18 commodity ETFs that launched in 2012.
