The annual performance of commodities since 2011 has been negative (with the exception of 2016), and has led some investors to question if commodities will continue to decline in the future.

At Washington Trust Bank, we invest in commodities futures as part of our growth assets within a diversified portfolio in an attempt to increase risk-adjusted return over the long term.
