Now, all this would be fairly academic where it not for another factor which has transformed access to commodities markets for the average investor: the rise of the exchange-traded fund. "With these new instruments, adding wheat to an investment portfolio is as simple as adding Vodaphone", says Scott.
But even though it might be easy, investing in commodities is also fairly high risk, so limiting your exposure to around 5-10% of your portfolio is advisable, he says.
Each chapter looks at a particular commodity in depth, analysing past performance, current demand, supply issues, and the investment outlook. There's also a comprehensive section listing all the available commodity ETFs on the London Stock Exchange.
As a guide for beginners, this book can't be faulted.
