The S&P Commodity Producers Index Series is comprised of three indices: the S&P Commodity Producers Agribusiness Index, the S&P Commodity Producers Gold Index and the S&P Commodity Producers Oil & Gas Exploration & Production Index.

·         The S&P Commodity Producers Agribusiness Index includes the largest publicly-traded companies involved in agriculture businesses around the world.

·         The S&P Commodity Producers Gold Index includes the largest publicly-traded companies involved in the exploration and production of gold and related products around the world.

·         The S&P Commodity Producers Oil & Gas Exploration & Production Index includes the largest publicly-traded companies involved in the exploration and production of oil and gas around the world.

“As investor appetite for commodities as a portfolio diversifier and inflationary hedge continues to grow, commodity producers — those companies involved in the exploration and production of these raw materials — has entered into the spotlight as an alternative means for investing in this traditional asset class,” says Alka Banerjee, Vice President of Global & Strategy Indices at S&P Indices. “The S&P Commodity Producers Index Series is designed to provide investors with a benchmark for measuring the equity performance of some of the world’s largest commodity producers, while also potentially serving as the underlying index for future exchange traded products.”

To ensure tradability, constituents must have a developed market listing and meet minimum market capitalization and liquidity requirements. Constituent weights are driven by float-adjusted market capitalization to reflect available shares to investors.
