A safe haven is an opportunity intended to maintain or increasing interest at periods of volatility in the economy. Investors are finding safe havens to minimize their exposure to damages in case of market downturns. The Swiss franc is regarded as a safe-haven currency. The separation of the nation from the European Union, therefore, renders it relatively resilient to any adverse political and economic events happening within the region. The pound, the Japanese yen and the US dollar are all called safe havens, in addition to the Swiss franc – all depending on the specific risk that the economy is facing.
