SLV iShares Silver Trust
What is SLV?
SLV tracks the silver spot price, less expenses and liabilities, using silver bullion held in London.
SLV Factset Analytics Insight
SLV gives investors direct exposure to silver by physically holding the metal in vaults in London. As such, investors get exposure to spot silver (determined by the London Silver Fix), less fund expenses. As this fund is considered a collectible for tax purposes, taxes on long-term gains are quite steep. Still, SLV provides stability for buy-and-hold strategies.
