Can an ETF hold the same company more than once?

I have been looking into the ETF holdings for VWRL by Vanguard and there appears to be duplicate holdings. In some instances there are 4 holdings of the same company, is this correct?

Where shares are Class A, B, C, etc they are labelled as such and don’t appear as duplicates.

Below is a list of the duplicate holdings.


Perhaps those shares are listed on more than one exchange? The prices per share are close but not the same, so the reason could be to have a longer window to trade them, than just buying on a single market.


I think you’re on to something here, they could be a mix of original shares and ADRs
