The Invesco FTSE RAFI US 1000 UCITS ETF is a fundamentally weighted index which means the index buys less of the expensive stocks in the top 1000 US stocks and more of the cheaper stocks using fundamental indicators. The result is that it outperforms the S&P 500 by roughly 2% over time.
Hi @Norky95 welcome welcome welcome
Thanks for the stock request, don’t forget to vote on your own request.
It might be worth taking a cautious approach to an ETF with volume as low as this. There is to guarantee you’d get a decent offer when the time comes to sell.
Thanks for pointing that out I didn’t even think of that.
There is an American version of the EFT which trades on NYSEArca it has much greater trading volume do you think this would be a better recommendation assuming there wouldn’t be any logistical or technical problems listing it on Freetrade?
Many US-registered ETFs are not available in the UK/EU as they’re not compliant with UCITS regulations. You found the compliant version as it has UCITS in the title. More information can be found here
This speak to the smaller and less developed ETF market in the UK. On the whole we don’t self invest in the same way as they do in the US (at the moment, FT are gliding what they can to change this)
@NeilB Thanks you have been very helpful
