Where to buy offshore ETFs? The JSE or NYSE?
Occasional Contributor

Investors can buy JSE listed ETFs offering exposure to various international markets or they can buy the same ETF in New York (NYSE) via Webtrader. Ultimately the underlying stocks will be the same - but is there is a difference for the investor and how should they decide which route is best for them?


In this webinar Simon Brown, Just One Lap founder, covers:

• Range of ETFs for the local JSE vs. the NYSE investor

• The costs involved, including; transaction fees, TERs, moving money, admin fees and more.

• Tax liability on local (and tax-free) vs. holding in NYSE

• Remitting and spending the money when exiting the ETFs

• What happens to the offshore ETFs when we die
