The Teucrium Soybean Fund
The Teucrium Soybean Fund (NYSE: SOYB) provides investors unleveraged direct exposure to soybeans without the need for a futures account. The Teucrium Soybean 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 soybeans (“Soybean Futures Contracts”) that are traded on the Chicago Board of Trade (“CBOT”). The three Soybean Futures Contracts will be: (1) second-to-expire CBOT Soybean Futures Contract, weighted 35%, (2) the third-to-expire CBOT Soybean Futures Contract, weighted 30%, and (3) the CBOT Soybean Futures Contract expiring in the November following the expiration month of the third-to-expire contract, weighted 35%, except that CBOT soybean Futures Contracts expiring in August and September will not be part of the Teucrium Soybean Fund's Benchmark because of the less liquid market for these Futures Contracts.
Teucrium Soybean Fund (the “Fund”) is a commodity pool that issues 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. The Fund is one of seven series of the Trust; each series operates as a separate commodity pool. Additional series of the Trust may be created in the future. The Trust and the Fund operate pursuant to the Trust’s Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust and Trust Agreement (the “Trust Agreement”). The Fund was formed and is managed and controlled by the Sponsor, Teucrium Trading, LLC. The Sponsor, a limited liability company formed in Delaware on July 28, 2009, is registered as a commodity pool operator (“CPO”) with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC") and is a member of the National Futures Association ("NFA").
SOYB has limited operating history, so there is little performance history to serve as a basis for you to evaluate an investment in the Trust. Investing in Soybean Interests subjects SOYB to the risks of the soybean market, and this could result in substantial fluctuations in the price of SOYB’s Shares. Unlike mutual funds, SOYB generally will not distribute dividends to Shareholders.
Investors may choose to use SOYB as a means of investing indirectly in soybeans or as a vehicle to hedge against the risk of loss, and there are risks involved in such investments and activities. The Sponsor has limited experience in operating a commodity pool, which is defined as an enterprise in which several individuals contribute funds in order to trade futures or futures options collectively.
Commodities and futures generally are volatile and are not suitable for all investors.
The Teucrium Soybean Fund is not a mutual fund or any other type of Investment Company within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and is not subject to regulation thereunder.
Shares of the Teucrium Soybean Fund are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and have no bank guarantee.
