FXB Factset Analytics Insight

FXB provides access to British pound by holding GBP through 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 is rebalanced quarterly.
