About the Fund
The Breakwave Dry Bulk Shipping ETF (BDRY™) is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) 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. The Fund provides transparency to investors by listing all its holdings daily, and 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.
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.
