The Quantix Inflation Index (QII) was developed by Quantix Commodities LP and is owned by Quantix Commodities Indices LLC (“Quantix”). The QII was created with the objective of being a diversified inflation hedge for investors using commodity futures contracts, traded in the U.S. and the U.K., as part of their core investment. Commodity futures are distinctive in their relationship to inflation and are generally regarded as having the highest positive correlation to inflation of all the major asset classes. The QII is designed to provide a risk management framework to hedge inflation risk appropriately in connection with commodity investing, taking account of the relative inflation sensitivity of each commodity among a defined universe of commodities, the relative cost of holding a rolling, U.S. or U.K.-listed futures position in a given commodity and the relative impact of inflation on each particular commodity.
Indices mentioned are unmanaged and are not available for direct investment.
