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.
