LNGG tracks the Alerian Liquefied Natural Gas Index, providing access to leading companies across the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) value chain. LNGG is the world's first dedicated LNG ETF.
NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Roundhill Investments, an ETF sponsor focused on innovative financial products, is pleased to announce the launch of the Roundhill Alerian LNG ETF (LNGG), which begins trading on the NYSE Arca today. LNGG is the world's first dedicated LNG ETF.
"LNG represents a transformative frontier in the energy sector, and its growth trajectory is evident from its rapidly expanding share within the global gas supply," said Dave Mazza, Chief Strategy Officer at Roundhill Investments. "For climate conscious investors, LNGG offers a practical solution to invest in a transitional fuel source that is significantly cleaner than alternatives like coal."
Natural gas prices vary widely depending on a region's ability to produce the energy source domestically. For example, U.S Henry Hub gas prices have averaged $2.58 thus far in 2023, while European gas has traded at an average of $13.10.1 Liquefied natural gas, or LNG, allows for countries like the United States to effectively export natural gas to regions like the EU and Asia, capturing a spread and helping to balance global supply and demand.
As a result, LNG's share in the global gas supply is projected to rise from 13% today to an impressive 23% by 2050.2 This growth will be driven by meeting escalating demand and a significant surge in anticipated spending on greenfield LNG projects in the upcoming years, with approved greenfield investments amounting to $27 billion in 2022 and a projected $42 billion in 2024.3 Meanwhile, spending on U.S. LNG projects is expected to amount to an estimated $100 billion over the next five years.4
LNGG offers investors a rare combination in the energy sector — growth and income — with the Alerian LNG Index yielding 4.5% as of August 31, 2023.5
LNGG's exposures span across the LNG value chain, including Liquefaction, LNG Carriers, Regasification, and more.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Alerian Liquefied Natural Gas Index. The Index is composed of the common stock of domestic and international companies in both developed and emerging markets, that are principally engaged in or derive significant revenue from the LNG industry. An Index cannot be invested in directly. Concentration Risk. Because the Fund's assets will be concentrated in an industry or group of industries to the extent the Index concentrates in a particular industry or group of industries, the Fund is subject to loss due to adverse occurrences that may affect that industry or group of industries. Oil & Gas Producers Industry. Companies in the Oil and Gas Producers Industry (the Industry) are affected by worldwide energy prices and exploration and production costs. The Industry may have significant operations in areas at risk for natural disasters, social and political unrest, and environmental damage. These companies may also be at risk for increased government regulation and intervention, litigation, and negative publicity and public perception. Depositary Receipt Risk. Depositary receipts, including American depositary receipts, involve risks similar to those associated with investments in foreign securities, such as changes in political or economic conditions of other countries and changes in the exchange rates of foreign currencies. Foreign & Emerging Markets Risks. Investments in foreign securities may involve risks such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation. Investing in emerging markets involves different and greater risks, as these countries are substantially smaller, less liquid, and more volatile than securities markets in more developed markets. New Fund Risk. The Fund is a recently organized investment company with no operating history. As a result, prospective investors have no track record or history on which to base their investment decision. Non-Diversification Risk. Because the Fund is "non-diversified," it may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a single issuer or a lesser number of issuers than if it was a diversified fund. As a result, the Fund may be more exposed to the risks associated with and developments affecting an individual issuer or a lesser number of issuers than a fund that invests more widely. This may increase the Fund's volatility and cause the performance of a relatively small number of issuers to have a greater impact on the Fund's performance. Passive Management Risk. The fund is passively managed and attempts to mirror the composition and performance of the Alerian Liquefied Natural Gas Index. The Fund's returns may not match due to expenses incurred by the Fund or lack of precise correlation with the index. Tracking Error Risk. As with all index funds, the performance of the Fund and its Index may differ from each other for a variety of reasons. For example, the Fund incurs operating expenses and portfolio transaction costs not incurred by the Index. In addition, the Fund may not be fully invested in the securities of the Index at all times or may hold securities not included in the Index.
