Hi @acamp

This ETF and iShares Edge MSCI World Value Factor (IWFV) both tracks MSCI World Enhanced Value index.

Why do I need to answer questions when investing in XDEV while no questions asked for IWFV ?

MSCI World Enhanced Value index

I believe both should have same level of risk and volatility.

Thanks for your question. I’ve raised it with our team to take a look. There are a number of factors that determine whether we require customers to complete an appropriateness test before investing in certain securities (not just volatility and risk). This can be things like the replication method an ETF uses to track an index, for example.

We can investigate further though to see.


Thanks for flagging this. We’ve review the Xtrackers product and have determined you shouldn’t need to complete an appropriateness test to invest. We’ll be updating this in the app shortly.
