Global X Aluminum ETF Makes Debut

The Global X Aluminum ETF made its debut today on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker "ALUM." The 22-stock ETF is the 18th to be introduced by Global X.

Global X has found success with commodities ETFs that opt to track equities rather hold physical commodities or futures contracts.

Recent additions to the Global X lineup such as the Global X Silver Miners ETF (NYSE: SIL) and the Global X Lithium (NYSE: LIT) have proven popular with investors, rapidly gaining assets.

With an expense ratio 0.69%, ALUM tracks the Solactive Global Aluminum Index. Top holdings include predictable fare such as Rio Tinto (NYSE: RIO), Alcoa (NYSE: AA) and Aluminum Corp. of China (NYSE: ACH).

The U.S. is the top country weight at over 21%, but Hong Kong, Japan and the U.K. also get double-digit allocations.
