Commodities

Commodities were the least-owned sector among our survey respondents, with less than one-third (29%) investing in them. But those who do invest have increased allocations and expect to invest more in the future in about the same proportions as real estate and infrastructure investors.

More than one-third (35%) of respondents  who allocate to commodities made moderate or substantial allocations in the past three years, while nearly half (45%) of respondents say they will boost allocations to commodities in the next 18 months, with 5% of those expecting to make substantial increases.
