This product offers investors a unique opportunity to invest internationally in companies who profit from the burgeoning agricultural commodity industry
Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 12, 2007
Investment firm Delta Global Advisors announced today the launch of the Delta Global Agricultural Portfolio, a unit investment trust that holds a fixed portfolio of approximately 23 companies, as of date of deposit, located in 10 countries focused on the production, distribution, processing, and enhancement of crop yields.
Delta Global believes such securities are attractive due to the decline in land globally being devoted to agriculture, the growing use of bio-fuels and the surging demand for food stocks to satisfy population growth worldwide.
"This product offers investors a unique opportunity to invest internationally in companies who profit from the burgeoning agricultural commodity industry," said the president of Delta Global, Chip Hanlon. "We continue to enjoy working with such a dynamic firm like Claymore Securities. Their reputation for offering unique products to the investment community continues with the offering of this agriculture portfolio."
"There are few equity portfolios which allow investors a way to profit from an increase in the agricultural commodities prices." Hanlon continued, "Further, we made the decision not to water down this portfolio with consumer food companies; this UIT is more of a pure play on agriculture producers."
Scott Larsen, Managing Director at Claymore Securities, said, "We are pleased to partner once again with Delta Global, and this new product provides a way to gain exposure to the rising agriculture prices we've seen lately."
The Delta Global Agriculture UIT is available through most full service and discount brokerage firms and is offered by Chicago-based Claymore Securities, Inc.

As with all investments, you can lose money by investing in this Trust. The Trust also might not perform as well as you expect. This can happen for reasons such as these:
Stock prices can be volatile. The value of your investment may fall over time. Market value fluctuates in response to various factors. These can include stock market movements, purchases or sales of securities by the trust, government policies, litigation, and changes in interest rates, inflation, the financial condition of the securities' issuer or even perceptions of the issuer.
The sponsor does not actively manage the portfolio. The Trust will generally hold, and may continue to buy, the same stocks even though the stock's outlook, market value or yield may have changed.
Share prices or dividend rates on the stocks may decline during the life of the Trust. There is no guarantee that the issuers of the securities will declare dividends in the future and, if declared, whether they will remain at current levels or increase over time.
The Trust invests in foreign securities and American Depositary Receipts ("ADRs"). The Trust's investment in foreign securities and ADRs presents additional risk. ADRs are issued by a bank or trust company to evidence ownership of underlying securities issued by foreign corporations. Foreign risk is the risk that foreign securities will be more volatile than U.S. securities due to such factors as adverse economic, currency, political, social or regulatory developments in a country, including government seizure of assets, excessive taxation, limitations on the use or transfer of assets, the lack of liquidity or regulatory controls with respect to certain industries or differing legal and/or accounting standards. The
trust invests in companies located in countries with emerging markets. These markets are generally more volatile than countries with more mature economies.
Inflation may lead to a decrease in the value of assets or income from investments.
The Trust invests in securities of companies in the agribusiness sector. Companies involved in the agribusiness industry are subject to numerous risks, including cyclicality of revenues and earnings, economic recession, currency fluctuations, changing consumer tastes, extensive competition, weather conditions, quotas, product liabilitylitigation and governmental regulation and subsidies.
Generally, the agribusiness industry is affected by the economic health of consumers. A weak economy and its effect on consumer spending would adversely affect agribusiness companies.
The Trust invests in securities of companies in the basic materials sector. General risks of basic materials sector include the general state of the economy, consolidation, domestic and international politics and excess capacity. In addition, basic materials companies may also be significantly affected by volatility of commodity prices, import controls, worldwide competition, liability for environmental damage, depletion of resources, and mandated expenditures for safety and pollution control devices.
The trust includes securities of companies in the consumer products sector. General risks of companies in the consumer products sector include cyclicality of revenues and earnings, economic recession, currency fluctuations, changing consumer tastes, extensive competition, product liability litigation and increased government regulation. Generally, spending on discretionary consumer products is affected by the health of consumers. A weak economy and its effect on consumer spending would adversely affect consumer products companies.
The Trust invests in stocks issued by small-capitalization and mid-capitalization companies. These stocks customarily involve more investment risk than stocks of larger capitalization companies. Small-capitalization and mid-capitalization companies may have limited product lines, markets or financial resources and may be more vulnerable to adverse general market or economic developments.
Investors should consider the investment objectives and policies, risk considerations, charges and ongoing expenses of the UIT carefully before investing.
