FlexShares® GUNR exchange traded fund seeks to deliver broad natural resources exposure with the convenience of a single, balanced stock portfolio. Investing in "upstream" natural resources may help investors offset some of the longer-term inflationary effects of economic expansion.
The upstream segment refers to the very beginning of the supply chain, where natural resources are still "in the ground." Ownership interests in upstream segments may offer investors profitability benefits from natural resource price increases; those same price increases may have a negative effect on the downstream segment of the supply chain. Find out how GUNR's focused approach seeks to help investors optimize exposure to natural resources.
