Commodity Pool

(redirected from Commodity pools)

Commodity Pool

A pool of liquidity that an investment company places in futures and options with the goal of producing a certain return. Because a commodity pool contains more liquidity than investors could afford on their own, it distributes risk between investors and allows them to forego margin requirements. Commodity pools are actively managed by the company to maintain the investment goals. Commodity pools are designed for investors who wish to take advantage of a highly diversified futures and options portfolio without a large amount of capital. See also: Commodity pool operator.
