The Teucrium Corn Fund

 

The Teucrium Corn Fund (NYSE: CORN) provides investors unleveraged direct exposure to corn without the need for a futures account. CORN provides transparency to investors by investing in a known benchmark (described below), listing all holdings nightly, and providing future roll dates. CORN was designed to reduce the effects of rolling contracts (and contango and backwardation) by not investing in front-month (spot) futures contracts and thus limiting the number of contract rolls each year.

 

The investment objective of CORN 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 corn (“Corn Futures Contracts”) that are traded on the Chicago Board of Trade (“CBOT”):

CORN is a commodity pool 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 five series of the Trust; each series operates as a separate commodity pool. The Fund is managed and controlled by the Sponsor, Teucrium Trading, LLC. The Sponsor 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").


 

Investing in Corn Interests subjects CORN to the risks of the corn market, and this could result in substantial fluctuations in the price of CORN’s Shares.  Unlike mutual funds, CORN generally will not distribute dividends to Shareholders.

 

Investors may choose to use CORN as a means of investing indirectly in corn 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 Corn 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 Corn Fund are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and have no bank guarantee.
