    Hi Guys,

    What opinions do you have regarding this ETF ?


    Is it safe ?
    A good investment?

    Hi Sorolla,

    It is safe, but it is not great for the following reasons:
    1. Domiciled in Ireland, long story short taxation on EU domiciled ETFs is pretty bad (take a look at the other posts or look at for more information).
    2. 0.25% in management fees is pretty high compared to other ETFs
    3. No exposure to small-cap companies

    A better option would be to invest in IWLD (Domiciled in Australia and 0.09% of mgt fees) or a mix of VTI,VXUS,... (Domiciled in the USA). Unfortunately, it's challenging to find a broker that would accept to sell you one of those.
    Best of luck !
