I spent some time reading this article from IC that goes over the top 50 core ETFs for the UK market.
I have spent some time putting together a list from that collection for my own passive investing, I am wondering if some ETF experts here can give me their opinion. The collection doesn’t have a WORLD wide ETF as I dont want too much overlap.
So far, I have Nasdaq / S&P 500 / FTSE100 / EM / Japan and some bonds. I wouldn’t mind looking into getting the whole UK market instead of the FTSE100, haven’t decided yet.
You can use this tool to see what your current allocations across country and sector and then compare them to a global index (e.g. FTSE All World) to see where you are under / over exposed. Then you just have to decide if you are happy with those discrepancies or not.
That graph I see around of how the FTSE it basically at the same level as it was 20 years ago always grinds my gears. I know a lot of people say “but the reinvested dividends” but even they appear to being slashed given the pandemic.
I’m keeping all of my investing outside of Brexit Britain, I don’t want the risk and I’m not clever enough to know how to short British companies or the £GBP!
