How can I invest in wheat?

With ETFs you not only have the opportunity to invest in equity or bonds. You can also participate in the price development of commodities like wheat. However, there are a few things you should know: commodity ETFs always track a whole basket of different commodities, covering at least some of the following segments:

Why there are no wheat ETFs in most European countries

There are no wheat ETFs that are domiciled within the European Union. This is due to the regulatory framework which is defined by the UCITS directive. According to these guidelines, an index (and thus also corresponding ETFs) must always provide a minimum degree of diversification and may not consist of only one component. Consequently, regulations in the EU do not allow the launch of a wheat ETF.

If you want to invest in a single commodity like wheat, you can do so via Exchange Traded Commodities (ETC). Please have a look at our article "What is an ETC?" for a detailed explanation of the similarities and differences between ETFs and ETCs.

Swap-based wheat ETCs

ETCs track the value of wheat based on futures contracts. Wheat ETCs are backed with collateral, which is usually checked on a daily basis. The collateral is in the form of cash investments or securities with top credit standing.

Wheat ETCs are a suitable instrument for participating in the price development of wheat. Keep in mind, however, that you are investing in futures contracts and not directly in wheat. In this investment guide you will find all ETCs that allow you to invest in wheat.
