Description
The investment seeks to seek total return through investments that create exposure to global currencies. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities and investments that create exposure to currencies of any country, including debt obligations of any maturity, money market instruments, cash deposits and derivative instruments. Under normal market conditions, it invests its assets in instruments that create exposure to currencies of at least three different countries (including the United States). The fund is non-diversified.
The iPath® Optimized Currency Carry ETN is designed to provide investors with exposure to the Barclays Optimized Currency Carry Index™. The Barclays Optimized Currency Carry Index™ (the "Index") is designed to reflect the total return of an "Intelligent Carry Strategy," which, through an objective and systematic methodology, seeks to capture the returns that are potentially available from a strategy of investing in high-yielding currencies with the exposure financed by borrowings in low-yielding currencies sometimes referred to as the "carry trade."
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expense, the Barclays Global Emerging Markets Strategy Pegged Currency Index. The investment provides exposure to 5 currencies: Hong Kong dollar, Singapore dollar, Saudi Arabia riyal and United Arab Emirates dirham, Chinese yuan.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.

Similarity

FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
