choice between (us) etf and (uk) fund
« on: June 07, 2016, 12:49:46 AM »

I am currently invested in Vanguard FTSE Developed World ex UK Equity Index Acc, but I was wondering whether Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (ARCA:VTI)  or Vanguard Total World Stock ETF (ARCA:VT) would be a better choice. Either of the last two feels like its investing globally through the US rather than through the UK. I understand that Total Stock Market is not directly international, but the companies in the index are international themselves. I didn't initially think about ETFs, but I am getting more comfortable with them as an idea. (0.05%) (0.14%) (0.15%)

Is it tax-friendly (no additional nonsense), is it really exactly what I think - same approach, different exchange, no surprises.
