Alternative ways to invest in Archer-Daniels-Midland Company

Buying shares in just one company is generally considered a riskier bet than investing in a range of investments - AKA a "diversified portfolio". Experts generally recommend holding a mix of investments in specific assets and funds. Funds are ready-made portfolios of multiple companies' shares (potentially including Archer-Daniels-Midland Company), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Archer-Daniels-Midland Company is a major part of the NYSE, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).
