iShares plans 14 active currency ETFs


iShares is planning to launch 14 active currency exchange-traded funds, according to regulatory paperwork filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The proposed ETFs, which will track the value of major currencies including sterling, the euro, and the yen against the US dollar, are being seen as a challenge to Guggenheim, the current market leader in the currency ETF space.

iShares Australian Dollar ETF (AUDS)
iShares British Pound ETF (GBPS)
iShares Canadian Dollar ETF (CADS)
iShares Chinese Offshore Renminbi ETF (CNHS)
iShares Euro ETF (EURS)
iShares Japanese Yen ETF (JPYS)
