The fundamentals of agriculture - ETF Securities PowerPoint presentation

Posted on 03 March 2009

ETF securities has published a presentation on ‘The Fundamentals of Agriculture’. Synopsis:

  • A growing world population and rising per capita incomes provides an enduring backdrop for growth in world food demand.
  • Agriculture ETCs saw their largest inflows since April 2008 on week ended Jan 23.
  • A total of $56 million of inflows occurred across a wide range of softs and grains.
  • Agricultural commodities returns have outperformed most asset classes through the credit crisis in 2008 and longer time horizons.
  • Agriculture ETC prices generally have a low correlation with the business cycle.
  • The agriculture/growth correlation is akin to safe-haven commodities such as gold over the long run, averaging close to zero over the past 10 years.
