The Teucrium Corn Fund
The Teucrium Corn Fund (NYSE: CORN) provides investors unleveraged direct exposure to corn without the need for a futures account. The Teucrium Corn Fund was also designed to reduce the effects of backwardation and contango.
The investment objective of the Fund is to have the daily changes in percentage terms of the Shares' Net Asset Value ("NAV") reflect the daily changes in percentage terms of a weighted average of the closing settlement prices for three futures contracts for corn ("Corn Futures Contracts") that are traded on the Chicago Board of Trade ("CBOT"), specifically (1) the second-to-expire CBOT Corn Futures Contract, weighted 35%, (2) the third-to-expire CBOT Corn Futures Contract, weighted 30%, and (3) the CBOT Corn Futures Contract expiring in the December following the expiration month of the third- to-expire contract, weighted 35%, less the Fund's expenses. (This weighted average of the three referenced Corn Futures Contracts is referred to herein as the "Benchmark," and the three Corn Futures Contracts that at any given time make up the Benchmark are referred to herein as the "Benchmark Component Futures Contracts."
Teucrium Corn Fund is a commodity pool that will issue Shares that may be purchased and sold on the NYSE Arca. The Fund is a series of the Teucrium Commodity Trust ("Trust"), a Delaware statutory trust organized on September 11, 2009. Additional series of the Trust that will be separate commodity pools may be created in the future, but the Fund is currently the Trust's only series.
