FXY Invesco CurrencyShares Japanese Yen Trust
What is FXY?
FXY tracks the changes in value of the Japanese yen relative to the US dollar.
FXY Factset Analytics Insight
FXY is known for its exposure to the Japanese yen (both long and short). The fund offers a simple strategy — it holds Japanese yen in a deposit account. Still, it is worth noting that: 1) there's no deposit insurance on its holdings, so it carries credit risk of its depository, JPMorgan, and 2) distributions and share sales are always taxed at ordinary-income rate (as opposed to capital gains), regardless of holding period. In addition, FXY doesn't deliver the overnight lending rate like its benchmark, but with interest rates in Japan near 0% (or even lower), that's not much of a drawback. In fact, a 0% yield is a boon for those looking to short shares in the fund.
