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

    • Very strange, when you think that they handle rights issues properly (including on CFD and spread-bet accounts) yet those similarly involve the holder having to make an election whether or not to take up their shares.

    • IG.com made me loose thousands of pounds as it does not pay the Hammerson enhanced scrip dividend. You are the only major share dealing company that does this. If I held shares with Hammerson in a dealing account on IG on 28 October 2021 you will not receive the enhanced scrip dividend. Last time it meant receiving a cash dividend of 0.2p rather than shares valued at 2p, a huge difference of 10 times. IG.com has done a rights issue Corporate Action for Hammerson before, so it is baffling why they are unable to complete this FTSE250 Corporate Action. Pathetic
