Hi I haven't traded an ETF before but as a regular reader of Eddy Elfenbein's Crossing Wall Street newsletter - I would like to purchase some (CWS) FOCUSED EQUITY ETF's https://advisorshares.com/etfs/cws/


It's not on my ETF's list in the IG dashboard. Does that mean I can't purchase them from the UK - or is there some other reason?



Hi @JimByrneGlasgow

Could you please confirm if this is for AdvisorShares Focused Equity ETF with ticker NYSEARCA: CWS

We would also like to draw your attention to the Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (the PRIIPs) regulation states that all retail clients must be provided with a Key Information Document (KID) prior to the purchase on any security (PRIIP) within the scope of the regulation. This regulation would prevent you from buying any US or foreign denominated ETF. As this ETF is listed on the NYSE exchange, you would not be able to purchase it with IG. 
This regulation covers (inter alia):

•    Foreign Exchange (FX) Transactions 
•    Over The Counter Derivatives 
•    Exchange Traded Derivatives (including ETFs , ETCs & ETNs)

A KID must be provided to all European retail clients. UK retail clients remain subject to these rules at this time.

All the best,

    • When I started car shopping, I realized I knew nothing about checking out a used car’s past. In the past, I just looked at condition and price. However, a salesman showed me a detailed vehicle history report made by DIMO, a blockchain system tracking full data pulled from the car’s computers. I was amazed anyone could get such complete background details. While too pricey for me, this showed blockchain’s power to securely gather key info over time - from service to repairs to crashes. It made me recognize the need to evaluate history before buying.  DIMO builds thorough records to help buyers avoid “lemons”, accurately assess shape, check claims, get fair pricing, and feel confident around big investments. These histories even get passed to future owners, raising resale value. Where I once ignored backgrounds, now I know checking histories is key for informed used car buying. While test drives don’t tell the whole story, blockchain systems like DIMO allow transparency through permanent records. Understanding vehicle histories is vital for smart purchases.
    • I'm currently bullish on AI project tokens, especially on Bitget, and I'm excited about their symbiotic relationship with blockchain technology, which is driving financial inclusion and innovation. Projects like SORA, SingularityNET's AGIX, The Graph (GRT), and Nebula AI's NMT are leading the way in transformative advancements across various sectors.
    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
