Alternative Investments: Amplify Plans ETF Targeting ‘Inflation Beneficiaries’ Including Cryptos
The ETF may invest in bitcoin futures traded on the CME, as well as commodities.
Amplify ETFs has filed for the launch of the Amplify Enhanced Inflation Beneficiaries ETF, which will provide investors exposure to businesses that benefit from inflationary pressures, such as companies whose revenues are expected to increase with rising consumer demand for land, increased rental income or higher raw-materials prices.

Investments by the actively-managed fund could include common stock, special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), convertible debt, and real estate investment trusts (REITs) of North American companies.

The companies could therefore be engaged in land development or management, home construction, infrastructure, commodities mining or production and other commodity linked real estate companies.
These investments may also include companies with indirect exposure to inflation through data centers or real estate technology companies that facilitate transactions in home purchases or rentals, commodity linked data processing or mining production, loan refinancing, facilitation of peer-to-peer lending and transaction processing.
The fund may also obtain commodities exposure by investing up to 10% of its net assets in U.S. commodity-linked instruments, which include: (1) ETFs that provide exposure to commodities; and (2) other pooled investment vehicles that invest primarily in commodities and commodity-related instruments.
The Fund’s cryptocurrency commodities exposure will be comprised of bitcoin futures contracts trading on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or Commodity-Linked Instruments on bitcoin.
However, the Fund will not invest directly in commodities, including bitcoin, and no one commodity futures contract will exceed 20% of the Fund’s net assets.
Inflation and rising prices have been a cause of concern for the financial markets because of implications such as rate hikes and withdrawal of monetary stimulus by central banks.
The Fed acknowledges concerns regarding the surge in inflation, but claims it is “transitory.”
