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

    • Gold makes fresh #Leg 1 to the downside while electing the MAJOR bearish reversal of 1836.10. The nearest bearish reversals starts at 1814.10 and presents the current trading range.
    • Following on from with the NETW chart above showing the Gartley: Its VITAL for you to take the geometry 1 step further - you can wing it without, but to really nail things down, it would be prudent to understand and KNOW geometrical relationships  I've worked out all the geometrical relationships for all the ratios So for example If a market retraces to a 61.8% level and a ABCD is working out, its highly probable that the CD leg will reach 161.8% of the AB leg from C - that's because 1.618 and 61.8% are linked intrinsically - 61.8% is the INVERSE of 161.8% Take the NETW chart: Price retraced to exactly 50% level - this is NOT a Fib number its ratio related to the SQUARE - from the chart below have a stab in the dark of the number % that 50% is the Inverse of.............................................. That's right 200% - Once you know these ratios, you no longer have to scratch your head wondering why a market does things at certain levels Look how the market reacted once it balanced the prior main retracement of 50% at the 200% level - obviously important! Thought these markets were meant to be random????????????????????????????????????? The expectation would be a rally upwards from that zone THT
    • Hi @Irsa Welcome to the community and thanks for reaching out.   Different types of leveraged products The majority of leveraged trading uses derivative products, meaning you trade an instrument that takes its value from the price of the underlying asset, rather than owning the asset itself. The main leveraged products are: 1. Spread betting (UK only) A bet on the direction in which a market will move, which will earn more profit the more the market moves in your chosen direction – but more loss if it goes the other way.   2. Contracts for difference (CFDs) An agreement with a provider to exchange the difference in price of a particular financial product between the time the position is opened and when it is closed.
