WisdomTree acquires GreenHaven Commodity Funds


WisdomTree Investments has completed the acquisition of GreenHaven Commodity Services, the managing owner of the GreenHaven Continuous Commodity Index Fund (GCC), and GreenHaven Coal Services, the sponsor of the GreenHaven Coal Fund (TONS).

WisdomTree has retained GreenHaven Advisors, LLC as the sub-advisor to the funds to conduct portfolio management services.

Jonathan Steinberg, WisdomTree CEO and President, says: "The acquisition of these ETFs represents WisdomTree's first foray into the commodities space and exemplifies our commitment to growing an innovative, differentiated and diversified product platform.  Today in the U.S. alone we offer 88 ETFs across traditional equities and currency-hedged equities, domestic and international fixed income, currencies, and alternatives strategies including commodities."

The funds will be rebranded as follows: The WisdomTree Continuous Commodity Index Fund ( GCC ) and The WisdomTree Coal Fund ( TONS ).

GCC is designed to provide investors with broad based, diversified commodity exposure by using futures contracts to track the Thomson Reuters Equal Weight Continuous Commodity Total Return Index ("CCI-TR"). The CCI-TR is an equal weighted index of 17 commodities plus an additional Treasury Bill yield.  The fund had USD227 million in assets under management as of December 31, 2015.

TONS is the first ETF designed to offer investors exposure to daily changes in the price of coal futures contracts.  The fund had USD1 million in assets under management as of 31 December, 2015.
