Allocating to commodities can potentially help investors enhance diversification in a traditional portfolio. Commodities have a low correlation to equities and fixed income, which means that they may help reduce overall volatility and provide differentiated sources of returns. At abrdn, we focus on commodities through three different lenses:

Broad based

Broad-based commodities are the building blocks of our everyday lives. Ranging from energy to grains to livestock, this asset class can potentially help expand portfolio diversification, improve risk management and hedge against inflation.

Precious metals

In this subset of the broader commodities universe, we look at gold, silver, platinum and palladium, which have a multitude of uses that run the gamut from jewelry to car exhaust systems.
