VWRA - FTSE All-World UCITS ETF (USD) Accumulating

Figured I should just start a new thread.

https://www.vanguard.co.uk/adviser/i...uity/?overview

Did VWRA OCF drop to 0.22%?

Yes:
Is this a good sign to get VWRA instead of IWDA + EIMI combi, especially for those who has not started the global investment leg yet?

Seen posts that VWRA volume is low. Is that a point for concern?

Nice. Their DM at 0.12% is also nice.

IWDA volume 165,423 x 64.08 = 10,600,305.84
VWRA volume 656 x 87.45 = 57,367.20

ishares get promoted heavily whereas Vanguard does not. I believe not many people know VWRA existed. Not sure if it will get improved over the years.

less liquid
higher spread
more tracking error

Less liquid is for sure.
Higher spread doesn’t really matter for Long unless in and out or etf then yes it is a problem.
Funds too young to study tracking error?

Less liquid - i dont see a practical significance for this. Unless you are selling all at one shot

Higher spread - not really significant for long term holders

Tracking error - i dont see how liquidity equals better tracking error.

So please revise your ans and answer again, what is the practical significance of higher volume?

Being less liquid would be an issue for those buying in bigger notional amount. If you want to execute a notional amount of say USD 100k, it will take your longer and more expensive for execution given the volume traded for IWDA is about 40x that of VWRA

yes liquidity cannot fight iwda + emim now. if liquidity is a concern, do iwda + emim.

VWRA cannot be a direct compare with IWDA as both are different. the DM and EM story.

Something to take note is IWDA is now heavier in US market. Their exposure has increase quite a fair bit over the years which now i think is 64%. VWRA is 55% which indirectly investors are paying a higher tax (15%)

From a fee perspective, blackrock will not lower fee (very unlikely) for a long long time. No competitor anyway.

whereas from vanguard, i hope they will reduce to 0.19% to 0.2% to make it competitive.
