Cohen & Steers to roll out commodities fund for UK market

Portfolio Adviser previously revealed that the US- based real asset firm Cohen & Steers is aiming to increase its presence in the UK and Europe during 2017. Keeping to their word, Cohen & Steers is set to launch a new commodities fund that will focus on exposure to global exchange-traded futures contracts across a range of sectors. Senior vice-president Mark Haynes gives his views on the launch, claiming that the time is right to launch the new Active Commodities fund, as the asset class is now witnessing a sustainable recovery after prices hit 14-year lows in January 2016.
