iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Energy Capped is an exchange-traded fund.  The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI Emerging Markets Energy 25/50 Index.  The underlying index is designed to measure the performance of energy-related companies in emerging market countries.  A capping methodology is applied to issuer weights so that no single issuer of a component exceeds 25% of the underlying index weight, and all issuers with weight above 5% do not exceed 50% of the underlying index weight.  The fund generally invests at least 80% of its assets in securities of the underlying index or in depositary receipts representing securities in the underlying index.  It is non-diversified.  iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Energy Capped is down 25.91% year-to-date.

Commodity ETFs can be extremely complex and risky.  They are only suitable for wealthy, sophisticated retail investors or institutional investors.

Brokerage firms that sell such products are required to perform adequate due diligence on the investments to ensure a reasonable likelihood of success, and to evaluate whether the investments are suitable in light of the client’s age, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives.  Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence, or that make unsuitable recommendations, can be held responsible for losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
