I looked at these iShares S&P tracker ETFs on FT.
These all use methods to hedge against currency loss. Mostly derivatives.
Here are the iShares S&P 500 low cost trackers with currency hedging:-
iShares S&P 500 GBP Hedged UCITS ETF Acc. (IGUS)
iShares S&P 500 UCITS ETF Dist (IUSA)
iShares Core S&P 500 UCITS ETF USD Acc (CSP1)
Shares Core S&P 500 UCITS ETF Dist (GSPX)
Like iShares, the Vanguard S&P 500 (VUAG) uses derivates.
I had thought that using derivatives could amplify losses as well as gains. Is this a good thing in a longer term ETF savings plan?
Did anybody see any iShares ETFs on FreeTrade that don’t hedge against currency?
I thank anybody taking their time to read this post, and appreciate every bodies thoughts and ideas.
