DBLCI Optimum Yield (OY) Balanced Index

The DBLCI-OY Balanced has the same underlying 14 commodities as the DBLCI-OY Broad, but, the energy sector weight is reduced from 55% of the broad index to 35%. The DBLCI-OY Balanced is designed to be UCITS III compliant, that is the weight of no single commodity or strongly correlated securities exceed 35%. The DBLCI-OY Balanced is listed as an ETF on the Deutsche Börse.

In terms of sector weights, the DBLCI-OY Balanced is broadly similar to the S&P GSCI Light Energy Index and the Dow Jones-AIG commodity index although the DBLCI-OY Broad has no exposure to the livestock sector, but, instead has a higher allocation to precious metals.
