I wonder if accumulating ETFs outperformed distributing ETFs because dividends are invested faster?
Let’s assumed an ETF with three companies: A, B and C.
Company A gives dividends on 30.01.2018
Company B gives dividends on 15.02.2018
Company C gives dividends on 25.02.2018
The distributing ETF will give the dividends to the investor on the 27.03.2018 and the investor buys more shares when the money is available on their account.
Does it mean dividends of company A are waiting from the 30.01.2018 to the 27.03.2018 (same for other companies) on the ETF provider account without interest to be distributed?
Does the accumulating ETF reinvest directly after the dividends distribution by the companies?
