The Bloomberg Commodity Index, formerly the DJ-UBS Commodity Index, is a broadly diversified index that tracks the commodities markets through commodity futures contracts. Since its launch in 1998, it has emerged as a leading benchmark of commodity markets. The headline index belongs to the class of first-generation benchmarks because it offers passive exposure to the most liquid, front part of the futures curve. By capping exposure to sectors, the index avoids concentration to the energy sector and concomitant risk associated with other first-generation indexes.
