Great news. I still hope Ireland based ETFs will also cut their fees,
Currently, Emerging ETF US based (VWO) is 0.12% and the one based in IE is 0.25% (VFEM).
I don’t understand why the european ones can’t beneficiate from the economy of scale.

They’re completely separate funds, run by separate entities, in a different country. The US one is 40x as large. (Those two also happen to track different indexes.)
