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:

-VOO

-IVV

-VUSA

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

  1. Total Expense Ratio (TER)

  2. Tracking Error

  3. Fund Size
