Get Involved - Vote here for the next Funds to be added to InvestEngine!
Over the last few months, many of you have asked us about adding new ETFs. We previously had a ‘Coming Soon’ list and still plan to add these. But we want to make sure you have a say on what we add next.
Update - We’re counting up the votes and will be adding the 10 most popular funds later this week (week ending 16th of September).
You can still vote and we’ll consider this for the next round of additions (early October TBC)
We deliberately added a few of the well-known mutual funds/unit trusts. These have been requested in the past (people don’t always realise they’re not ETFs). I can’t say we’ll be adding them in September - but we do want to gauge how much demand there is for these funds.
So feel free to let us know about any other funds your want to see!
Hi. I’ve requested this via private message already - but the Amundi Prime Global ETF should be added without doubt in my opinion, as it’s currently by far the cheapest way to invest in developed world markets
@RaAl - QQQ3, QQQ5 & XS2D are leveraged funds & the Ark funds are Collateralized Debt instruments. We’re not in a position to add them this time around - but it really helpful to know there’s demand for these and they’re funds we’ll consider in the future. Thanks
Regarding the leverage funds it is principally a policy decision and compliance review.
We’re required to have a documented process in place to show these funds have been formally reviewed and we’re satisfied that they’re appropriate for our platform/product, we have the right warning in place etc.
These leverage funds are inherently riskier. There are also other factors with these funds that may not make them suitable to hold long-term (they typically track multiples of daily price movements – but other costs and structural elements of the fund mean this may not accurately track weekly or monthly movements). That said, I think we are in principle open to making them available for DIY portfolio.
Hope that makes it clear. You’re giving us a good sense of the demand for these funds - that’s really helpful so thanks.
I agree that GBDV - SPDR S&P Gbl Dividend Aristocrats UCITS ETF Dist looks a great ETF for those that want a more Value weight. Checking the data from Morningstar, the weight among Large/Medium/Small caps are really well distributed for having more diversification.
