About the Fund's Index

DBIQ Diversified Agriculture Index tracks the performance of the broad agricultural futures sector using DBIQ's Optimum Yield™ contract selection methodology where appropriate. The fund seeks to track the excess return version of the index (DBLCDBAE). Because the fund collateralizes its futures positions with positions in 3-month U.S. Treasuries, the results of the total return version of the index (DBLCDBAT) are displayed for performance purposes.
