VTI/VXUS/VOO equivalent for ISA trading?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I transferred my ISA from HL to IG a few months back (mainly because of HL's ridiculous charges) and i have not been able to find any ETF to essentially mimic VTI in particular that I can trade on my ISA account. Would you have any idea of any ETFs available on ISA share dealing that would perform and hold similar if not identical stocks with VTI and VOO and VXUS.

I am quite stressed about finding something soon because I haven't found anything in a while and my money is just sitting there. Also, not sure IG can help as they don't seem to be knowledgeable whenever I've spoken to them. 

Any ideas very appreciated.

Thanks :)

Hi, I empathise rates on HL are high, and I have considered doing something similar, but I think they have exposure to a larger range of funds?.. unless you are considering putting your ISA money into companies that pay dividends I can't see the point of bringing ISA here to IG... Please advise though as I'm considering doing something similar. Maybe consider setting up an ISA portfolio with investments that pay dividends instead.

Hi, the ETFs you refer to are all US-domiciled ETFs which are not available to UK investors given that they do not produce a Key Information Document (KID). This is part of a set of EU investment regulations designed to protect consumers (PRIIPs stands for Packaged Retail Investment and Insurance Products). More info here: https://www.etfstream.com/features/etf-insight-european-investors-set-to-be-impacted-by-kid-requirements/

Instead, you can invest in UCITS ETFs which provide such documentation. I have given some examples of UCITS ETFs below which are also listed on the London Stock Exchange which will give you a similar exposure and also help to keep you costs of investing down. But others are available and please do your own research on these before investing.

Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI) and Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VOO) have performed similar to Vanguard S&P 500 UCITS ETF (VUSA) given the vast majority of their exposure is to US large cap stocks.

CSP1 invests purely in S&P 500 stocks so has a slightly lower exposure to smaller cap stocks than VTI. Over past three years VTI has outperformed CSP1 by 1.45%.

For Vanguard Total International Stock ETF (VXUS), unfortunately I haven’t been able to find a UCITS alternative. You can see the country breakdown in the link below and could look to replicate the majority of its exposure using some single country ETFs: https://investor.vanguard.com/etf/profile/portfolio/vxus

Alternatively, we have a range of managed portfolios called IG Smart Portfolios which give investors access to a range of international equities. You can add an IG Smart Portfolio in the dashboard area of My IG. More information on these can be found here: https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/smart-portfolios

    • Just recently, I wrote an article about how a Solana blockchain art project (Artrade) is helping artists raise their earnings and even further transforming their physical works into RWA essentially NFTs. With that in mind, I came across Rarible, a marketplace that focuses on digital art and NFTs and the similarities of the platforms caught my attention. Rarible allows artists to sell their creations as NFTs, essentially digital certificates of ownership and cuts out middlemen, connecting artists directly with buyers. Beyond trading, Rarible offers a somewhat user-friendly interface for creating NFTs, even for beginners.   The platform unlike Artrade is built on the Ethereum blockchain and uses its own token, RARI, for governance and rewarding active users. In the long term they seem building with the goal of becoming a DAO in the future While it’s still early days, I have no doubt Rarible offers a unique approach to buying, selling, and creating digital art, and the recent listing on Bitget will further expose it to new communities and potential investors.     Do you think RARI's approach will be sustainable as a marketplace for NFTs?
    • Soybeans Elliott Wave Analysis  Function - Trend  Mode - Impulse  Structure - Impulse for (5)  Position - Wave 1 of (5) Direction - Wave 2 of (5) Details - Wave 1 of (5) completing with a diagonal. Wave 2 bounce is emerging before the price turns downside for 3 of (5). Invalidation now at 1226’6. Not much has changed since the last update.   Soybean Price Analysis: Elliott Wave Perspective Signals Continued Downward Trend   In the realm of commodity trading, Soybean has recently undergone a significant downturn, marking a nearly 7% drop since March 21st. This decline appears to be part of a broader trend that commenced back in June 2022. However, before this recent descent, there was a brief period of respite characterized by a corrective bounce starting in late February.    Delving deeper into the price action, an Elliott Wave analysis sheds light on the intricacies of Soybean's movement. The daily chart's decline since June 2022 reveals a corrective pattern, delineated into waves A-B-C, as denoted by blue annotations.   The initial wave, labeled as Blue Wave 'A', terminated at 1249 in October 2023, exhibiting a distinct diagonal pattern. Subsequently, a modest rebound ensued, marked by Blue Wave 'B', which concluded at 1398 in November 2023. However, the ascendancy was short-lived as the bears regained control, manifesting in the ongoing development of Blue Wave 'C'. This wave, evolving into an impulse wave, has currently progressed to wave (5) following the completion of wave (4) in March 2024.   Zooming in on the H4 chart, a granular analysis reveals the sub-waves of wave (5). Wave 1 of (5) concluded with a diagonal structure, followed by a corrective phase as the price undergoes a temporary upside correction to complete wave 2. Despite uncertainties regarding whether wave 2 has fully concluded or will undergo another upward leg, the overarching trajectory remains clear – a downward break is anticipated to continue wave 3 of (5), leading to further downside movement.   In light of this analysis, the prevailing sentiment favors sellers, who continue to assert dominance over the commodity market. As long as the price remains below 1226’6, the outlook remains skewed towards further downside potential, with the possibility of reaching the lowest price point since November 2020.   In conclusion, the Elliott Wave perspective offers valuable insights into Soybean's price dynamics, signaling a continued bearish trajectory in the near term. While short-term fluctuations may occur, the broader trend suggests that sellers are likely to maintain control, shaping the commodity's price action in the foreseeable future.   Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo   Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
