Currency ETFs

Most of these ETFs focus their investments on specific or various currencies. These currencies can aim to replicate movements in currency in the foreign exchange market by holding currencies either directly or through currency-denominated short-term debt instruments, domestic currencies (U.S. Dollar), foreign currencies, or a combination of all. While investing in Currency ETFs is a particular way to achieve international diversification and to hedge against losses in the U.S. dollar, it also requires a bit of expertise to understand the global ramifications of what is happening across the globe. With that, we believe these ETFs are better suited for moderate investors who may be more willing to accept variations in their portfolio's balance. Again, because of the hedging aspect vs other investments in one's portfolio, we do see some risk being removed from owning them, hence not labeled as aggressive investors only. We certainly understand any investor who may be apprehensive from considering these from the lack of expertise in global currency movements.
