Hi.. Other than the usual ETF (sti, reits, bond), the rest of the ETF bid/spread seems to be of huge difference. Is it still recommended to buy the asia ex jap or china etf listed in sgx? Or should we just buy london listed etf
What spread levels are you seeing that is raising concern? The SG market is way off other big financial centres in terms of liquidity/activity and so big-ask spreads can grow at times; but for a individual investor view - this is a one off cost. So picking the right index would be much more important than a few percentage points "lost" crossing the spread.
