A few months ago I switched from ComStage MSCI EmergingMarkets TRN UCITS ETF to the UBS MSCI EmergingMarkets UCITS ETF.
Mainly because of the lower TER and its bigger fond-size. Now by “switching” I mean I just started to buy the UBS one with my monthly investments, I haven’t sold the other one yet.
Now since I’m buying the new one I realized how tiny the trading-volume of the ComStage one was. I don’t have to wait for 15 minutes for somebody to sell to me and I don’t have to use wide limits.
My question is: Is there any risk attached to holding onto a low-volume ETF? Do I risk not being able to sell when I want to? Obviously I would lose some money to transaction-fees if I had to sell and buy new (100-200CHF) that I’d rather avoid.
- Volume-difference: 15 ComStage vs 115’392 UBS
- Spread: 0.33CHF ComStage vs 0.07USD UBS
