Buying iShares Core S&P 500 with Degiro

Hi everyone,
i would like to buy iShares Core S&P 500 with Degiro.

It seems that i can buy the same shares on different stock exchanges.
Does it somehow matter which stock exchange or country i choose?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

The IE0031442068 (iShares Core S&P 500 UCITS ETF USD (Dist)) is commission free to purchase on Degiro and it is listed on AEM.
Otherwise, chose the most liquid exchange (to get lowest spreads).

But the IE0031442068 is a distributing ETF.
I thought it is better to have a accumulating ETF if i want to keep the ETF for longer period of time …

There is no difference for a Swiss investor. Dividends are taxed the same for accumulating and distributing ETFs.

I did not think about taxes in particular.
More about the extra effort to buy more shares if i get dividends …

In this case you are right, but if you are buying at regular intervals anyway this is hardly a discomfort.

Mind you that if you have a ‚ÄėCustody‚Äô account type they charge 1‚ā¨ +3% for each dividend payout (but it‚Äôs for free for the other account type).


What’s a Custody account?

Thanks for the tips!

Another Question: Last Friday the IE0031442068 on AEM closed with -3.29%.
But the real S&P closed with -0.82%.

Different closing time, what was the loss when Amsterdam market closed?

Yes, i assumed that.
I do not remember the S&P 500 value when Amsterdam was closing.
But what happens with the difference in performance?

There’s no difference, it will be priced when the market opens on Monday.
