FXB Fund Description

The CurrencyShares British Pound Sterling Trust delivers exposure to changes in value of the British pound relative to the US dollar.

FXB Factset Analytics Insight

FXB is an investor favorite for accessing the British pound. With a solid asset base, it dominates the competition. For a middling fee, the fund holds British pounds in a deposit account—a simple, direct strategy. However, FXB's deposits are uninsured, leaving investors exposed to the default risk of JPMorgan, the fund's depository bank. Tax efficiency is another concern—any distributions or capital gains are taxed at ordinary income rates (regardless of holding period). FXB's liquidity is excellent, generally trading in strong volumes with tight spreads, and it gets high marks for block liquidity. Both large and small investors should be able to trade the fund easily. Overall, FXB is a solid choice, and its combination of liquidity and coverage makes it one of the best options in its space.
