- The first and only freight futures exchange-traded product exclusively focusing on dry bulk shipping
- A pure play exposure to dry bulk shipping, an instrumental part of the global commodity market, uncorrelated to other major assets
- Designed to profit from increases in freight futures beyond what is already priced in the market
The Breakwave Dry Bulk Shipping ETF (BDRY) is an exchange-traded product designed to reflect the daily price movements of the near-dated dry bulk freight futures. BDRY offers investors unlevered exposure to dry bulk freight without the need for a futures account. BDRY provides transparency to investors by listing all its holdings daily. BDRY is designed to reduce the effects of rolling contracts by using a laddered strategy to buy contracts while letting existing positions expire and settle in cash. BDRY is a commodity pool that issues shares which may be purchased and sold on NYSE Arca.
The Fund will hold freight futures with a weighted average of approximately three months to expiration, using a mix of one-to-six-month freight futures, based on the prevailing calendar schedule. The Fund intends to progressively increase its position to the next calendar quarter three-month strip while existing positions are maintained and settle in cash. The initial freight futures allocation will be 50% Capesize contracts, 40% Panamax contracts and 10% Supramax contracts, rebalancing annually, as needed, during the first two weeks of the month of December.
