In an effort to diversify my portfolio, I am strongly contemplating investing in an ETF covering Swiss small and/or mid cap companies.
In theory, this should be quite easy through the SPI Extra
However, in practice I did not find many ETFs that suit my purposes. Here are a few I found:
UBS ETF (CH) SPI® Mid (CHF) A-dis
Seems like a default option for my purposes, covers 80 titles, TER at 0.25% is quite attractive.
iShares SMIM® ETF (CH)
Less depth, only 30 titles. TER at 0.45% is higher than the UBS alternative. Prima vista, less attractive to me.
CSIF (CH) Equity Switzerland Small & Mid Cap
The black horse among the three. This one has been mentioned in here before and even made it into the forum’s recommendations list, but I frankly still do not fully understand this type of instrument. It’s not an ETF, it has fixed spreads, the fees are unclear however (it says 0%, but I find that hard to believe). Anyone has got experience with this one? Maybe @nugget who wrote about it before?
What do you think? Any other ETFs/Funds to mention?
