S&P 500 Index
Asked on 10 Apr 2020
What are some indicators of good S&P 500 ETFs that I can be looking at?
Yes the Irish domicilied ETFs could be more attractive with their 15% withholding tax on dividends. Examples of these ETFs listed on LSE include:
CSPX - iShares version
VUSA - Vanguard version in GBP
VUSD - Vanguard version in USD
VUAA - similar to VUSD, but the dividends are reinvested automatically. This is a relatively new ticker hence the trading volume may not be as high comparative to the more established three above.
All the best!
The best are:
they all are completely O.K., with the small TER differences almost irrelevant.
From a tax treatment perspective Ireland domciled VUSA seems prudent.
You can consider irish domiciled s&p500 etfs listed on LSE since theres only a 15% withholding tax on dividends as compared to 30% witholding tax for those listed on NYSE.
Some etfs listed on LSE to consider are: VUSA (TER 0.07%), CSPX (TER 0.07%)
Generally when picking an etf, the things to look out for include
Total Expense Ratio (TER)
