The USCF SummerHaven SHPEN Index Fund (BUYN) seeks to track the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the SummerHaven Private Equity Natural Resources Strategy Index® (SHPEN).
The Fund employs a “passive management” or “indexing” investment approach designed to track the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index. The Index includes common stocks of micro-, small-, and mid-capitalization U.S. companies in the natural resources industry with market capitalizations of at least $100 million and lower than $10 billion at the time of index construction. The market capitalization range of the Index may fluctuate between rebalancing periods. The companies comprising the Index are listed on U.S. stock exchanges.
The Index attempts to replicate the long-term return (i.e., return over 10 years or longer) of diversified natural resources private equity allocations. The Index is designed to include publicly-traded companies that possess characteristics similar to the companies that private equity firms focusing on natural resources have historically selected for investment, as well as companies that the index provider, believes private equity firms focusing on natural resource investments are likely to select for investment in the future. However, the Index does not include, and the Fund does not invest in, private equity funds or private equity of companies. The Fund does not invest directly in natural resource commodities.
The Index is constructed using a proprietary methodology that favors companies with low enterprise value to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EV / EBITDA) ratios; low net equity issuance; low market capitalization; and moderate profitability. Proprietary screens are applied to a universe of approximately 600 U.S. companies to determine an investable universe. The Index includes the greater of 80 companies or 40% of such investable universe. The Index is equally-weighted and rebalanced annually.
Under normal market conditions, the Fund generally invests substantially all, but at least 80%, of its total assets in the common stocks comprising the Index. The Fund generally invests in substantially all of the common stocks comprising the Index and in approximately the same proportions as the Index. In addition, the Fund may invest in cash, cash equivalents, and money market instruments.
The Index includes natural resources companies in the following broad sectors: energy; materials; industrials; consumer discretionary; and consumer staples.
