Commodities

Commodities come with returns that are substantially independent of stock and bond returns. Mixing in broad commodity exposure with stocks and bonds can help significantly diversify a portfolio, potentially reducing the risk of an overall portfolio and boosting returns. Given their impact on consumer goods prices, this distinct asset class can also offer a hedge against inflation.
