Fund Description

The Fund seeks to track the investment results of the ICE BofA Commodity Enhanced Carry Total Return Index (the Underlying Index), which measures the performance of the 10 commodity futures contracts representing the underlying commodities with the largest global production value, where more weight in the Underlying Index is given to those contracts having the highest degree of backwardation or lowest degree of contango (i.e., those with the highest positive carry, as explained below) among a universe of 22 futures contracts on physical agricultural,
energy, precious metals, and industrial metals commodities listed on U.S. and non-U.S. futures exchanges, as determined by ICE Data Services, LLC IDI or the Index Provider). The Underlying Index is rebalanced on a monthly basis and could contain more than 10 contracts during the rebalancing period. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective primarily by investing in a total return swap on the Underlying Index.
The Fund, through its Subsidiary (as defined below) will invest in financial instruments that provide exposure to commodities, and not in the physical commodities themselves. Although the Fund reserves the right to invest in a broad range of financial instruments, the Fund expects to obtain a substantial amount of its exposure to the investment results of the Underlying Index by entering into total return swaps that provide returns similar to the commodity futures contracts referenced in the Underlying Index.
In order to maintain exposure to a futures contract on a particular commodity, an investor must sell the position in the expiring contract and buy a new position in a contract with a later delivery month, which is referred to as rolling. If the price for the new futures contract is less than the price of the
expiring contract, then the market for the commodity is said to be in backwardation. In these markets, investors experience positive roll returns, which is referred to as positive carry. The term contango is used to describe a market in which the price for a new futures contract is more than the price of the expiring contract. In these markets, investors experience negative roll returns, which is referred to as negative carry. The Underlying Index seeks to employ a positive carry strategy that emphasizes commodities and futures contract months with the greatest degree of backwardation and lowest degree of contango, resulting in net gains through positive roll returns.
The Fund is expected to establish new total return swap contracts on the Underlying Index on an ongoing basis and replace expiring contracts. Total return swaps subsequently acquired by the Fund may have terms that differ from the swaps the Fund previously held. The Fund generally expects to pay a fixed payment rate and swap-related fees to each counterparty and receive the total return of the Underlying Index, including, in the event of negative performance by the Underlying Index, a negative return (i.e., a payment from the Fund to the swap counterparty). As of October 31, 2023, the Underlying Index was comprised of 12 components.
BFA uses an indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. Unlike many investment companies, the Fund does not try to beat the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued.
Indexing may eliminate the chance that the Fund will substantially outperform
the Underlying Index but also may reduce some of the risks of active management, such as poor selection of securities and/or other instruments. Indexing seeks to achieve lower costs and better after-tax performance by aiming to keep portfolio turnover low in comparison to actively managed investment companies.
BFA uses a representative sampling indexing strategy to manage the Fund. Representative sampling is an indexing strategy that involves investing in a representative sample of securities and/or other instruments that collectively has an investment profile similar to that of an applicable underlying index. The securitiesand/or other instruments selected are expected to have, in the aggregate, investment characteristics (based on factors such as market value and industry weightings), fundamental characteristics (such as return variability, duration, maturity, credit ratings and yield) and liquidity measures similar to those of an applicable underlying index. The Fund may or may not hold all of the securitiesand/or other instruments in the Underlying Index.
The Fund also seeks to generate interest income and capital appreciation on the cash balances arising from its investment in Commodity Investments (as defined below) through a cash management strategy consisting primarily of investments in cash and cash equivalents, short-term government obligations, and short-term fixed-income securities (collectively, Fixed-Income Investments). The Fund invests in Fixed-Income Investments for investment purposes and to provide sufficient assets to account for (or cover) mark-to-market changes and to
collateralize the Subsidiary’s investments in derivatives on a day-to-day basis.
The Fund may also invest in swaps on commodity futures contracts that are not included in the Underlying Index but provide exposure to commodities from the same sectors as those found in the Underlying Index, as well as in futures, options and forwards that provide exposure to commodities from such sectors (collectively with total return swaps on the Underlying Index, the Commodity Investments). The Fund will invest in Commodity Investments solely through its Subsidiary. INVESTING IN DERIVATIVE CONTRACTS MAY HAVE A LEVERAGING EFFECT ON THE FUND BECAUSE OF THE LEVERAGE INHERENT IN THE USE OF DERIVATIVES.
The Fund seeks to gain exposure to Commodity Investments by investing through a wholly-owned subsidiary organized in the Cayman Islands (the Subsidiary). The Subsidiary is advised by BFA and has the same investment objective as the Fund. Unlike the Fund, the Subsidiary is not an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the 1940 Act). The Subsidiary invests solely in Commodity Investments and cash and cash equivalents.
In compliance with Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Internal Revenue Code), the Fund may invest up to 25% of its total assets in the Subsidiary. The Fund’s Commodity Investments held in the Subsidiary are intended to provide the Fund with exposure to broad commodities consistent with current U.S. federal income tax laws applicable to investment companies such as the
Fund, which limit the ability of investment companies to invest directly in Commodity Investments.
The remainder of the Fund’s assets will be invested directly by the Fund, primarily in Fixed-Income Investments, including repurchase agreements, money market instruments, U.S. government and agency securities, sovereign debt obligations on non-U.S. countries (excluding emerging market countries), commercial paper, non-convertible corporate debt securities, and obligations of U.S. and non-U.S. banks and similar institutions.
The CFTC has adopted certain requirements that subject the adviser of a registered investment company to regulation by the CFTC if such registered investment company invests more than a prescribed level of its net asset value in commodity interests, including futures, options and swaps, or if the registered investment company markets itself as providing investment exposure to such instruments. Due to the Fund’s potential use of commodity interests above the prescribed levels, it is considered a commodity pool under the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA).
The Underlying Index is sponsored by the Index Provider, which isindependent of the Fund and BFA. The Index Provider determines the composition and relative weightings of the securities in the Underlying Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Underlying Index.
