Investment Strategy:

KMET tracks the Bloomberg Electrification Metals Index, composed of futures contracts on aluminum, copper, nickel, zinc, cobalt, and lithium. From Electric Vehicles (EVs) and batteries to renewable energy infrastructure, the metals exposures within KMET are experiencing strong demand from a range of electrification uses. We believe these metals' value will increase alongside accelerating global decarbonization efforts.

Electrification Metals Highlights:

  • More than $140 trillion of investment is needed for the clean energy transition over the next thirty years.1
  • To reach climate goals, a tripling of mineral demand is expected from the low-carbon power generation sector by 2040.2
  • Transitional commodities are expected to experience a demand and supply imbalance over the next decade.

KMET Features:

  • Provides a unique thematic exposure to transitional commodities and a hedge against climate change, inflation, and supply-side disruptions.
  • May be a beneficiary of increasing demand for electrification with the continued decarbonization of the global economy and strengthened climate policy.
  • Can provide potential portfolio diversification,3 as climate-aligned investments may act as a differentiated and non-correlated source of return that are not driven by the economic cycle.
