  • Currency-hedged ETFs have fallen out of favor in recent months, but there could be a resurgence of investor interest following the recent rise in exchange rate volatility.

  • Investors have been snapping up gold as the value of the euro and pound sterling have fallen in the wake of the Brexit vote. The pound GBPUSD, -0.7141% slumped to a 31-year low overnight, and comments from the Bank of England renewed worries about prolonged uncertainty in Europe.
