USCF launches USCF SummerHaven Dynamic Commodity Strategy No K-1 Fund


USCF has launched the USCF SummerHaven Dynamic Commodity Strategy No K-1 Fund (SDCI) with SummerHaven Index Management LLC (SummerHaven), a Stamford, CT based index management firm that has developed indices in the commodities space. 

The Fund, an actively managed exchange-traded fund (ETF), will use the SummerHaven Dynamic Commodity Index as its benchmark, which is also the benchmark utilised by the firms’ first collaboration, the United States Commodity Index Fund (NYSE Arca: USCI).  SDCI seeks long-term total return.
“SDCI has been a major component of our plan to offer investors truly diversified access to the commodity space,” says John Love, President and CEO of USCF.  “The SummerHaven Dynamic Commodity IndexSM ushered in a new generation in commodity indexing.  Rather than making incremental changes to established benchmarks, the index was built from the ground up in 2009 placing the needs and goals of investors first.  Investors have frequently asked for an investment vehicle that is guided by the SummerHaven Dynamic Commodity IndexSM but that does not issue a K-1 tax form, and the ETF structure of SDCI enables us to do that.” 
SummerHaven and USCF have collaborated on three other exchange traded products: the United States Copper Index Fund (CPER), the United States Agriculture Index Fund (NYSE Arca: USAG), and the United States Commodity Index Fund (NYSE Arca: USCI), which also uses the SummerHaven Dynamic Commodity IndexSM as a benchmark, as well as a mutual fund, the USCF Commodity Strategy Fund. The SummerHaven Dynamic Commodity IndexSM is a total return commodity sector index designed to broadly represent major commodities. It reflects the performance of a fully collateralised portfolio of 14 commodity futures, selected each month from a universe of 27 eligible contracts. Unlike many commodity indices, the index rebalances to equal weights on a monthly basis and features a diversification rule that allows it to maintain broad exposure to all commodity sectors.
“We are excited to build on our long-term collaboration with USCF and to leverage the great success of our other funds,” says Ashraf Rizvi, Partner of SummerHaven. “This new Fund utilises the established SummerHaven Dynamic Commodity Index as its benchmark, providing an attractive commodity ETF with no K-1 for investors.”
“Our team is thrilled with the opportunity to expand our relationship with SummerHaven,” said Love. “We feel that they possess unparalleled expertise and depth of knowledge, and their work is a benefit to the world of commodity investing.”
