Of particular interest to Mustachians, the VT is now 0.09%, VXUS is 0.09%, VEA is 0.07% and VWO is 0.12%, VTI remains unchanged at 0.04%.

edit:

effective TER for market weight all-world allocations as of today:
VT is 0.09%

VTI+VEA+VWO (55%/35%/10%) is 0.0585%

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.)

Would be nice if they slashed those fees the same way (not to the same level) for their Ireland-based ETFs.

This is bloody amazing - what I would call financial art :smiley: (either that or “tax evasion art”)
