Why choose commodity indices?
Our commodity indices track baskets of commodities to reflect price movements and are recognised as a major barometer of commodity prices and markets.
Designed to provide exposure to the global commodities industry, all indices have a strong connection to the Commodity Research Bureau (CRB®) name, and many are tracked by Exchange Traded Funds and other derivatives.
FTSE CoreCommodity CRB® Indices are administered by Refinitiv Benchmark Services Limited (RBSL), authorised as a Benchmark Administrator under UK BMR.
