FXF Fund Description

The CurrencyShares Swiss Franc Trust tracks the changes in value of the Swiss franc relative to the US dollar.

FXF FactSet Analytics Insight

FXF is the only game in town for those interested in accessing the Swiss franc. FXF holds Swiss francs directly in a deposit account, so it comes as no surprise that the fund tracks the franc/US dollar exchange rate well, providing terrific exposure to the Swiss franc in an ETF wrapper. However, the fund's deposits are uninsured, leaving investors exposed to the default risk of the fund's depository, JPMorgan. Secondly, tax efficiency is a concern, as both distributions and sales of FXF are always taxed at ordinary income rates. FXF generally trades steadily and easily, with tight spreads. Volume is a little thin, so large orders might be trickier, but it's a good vehicle for smaller traders. Since the fund simply holds currency, institutional investors should find straightforward block execution. The fund charges an average rate for a single-currency fund and, being the only fund offering this exposure, alternatives are rather lacking. Fortunately, what investors see on the price tag is what they get.
