ETFs to watch in 2020 | Etoro and Degiro

ETF stands for Exchange Traded Fund, it is simply a fund that can be bought on the stock exchange. ETFs are often composed of stocks that have something in common - are from the same sector, paying dividend or are from some specific country.

ETFs are good alternative to mutual funds because of significantly lower fees.

Below are some ETFs that I'm personally thinking about buying in 2020. The 'buy' mark means that I will be likely buying the ETF in the future, it is not recommendation to anyone else.

This is not investment advice.


ETFs to buy via Degiro broker without provision fees (only when you buy once a month, otherwise there are fees):

ETFs to buy via Etoro broker without provision fees:
buy dividend funds from London exchange (ticker ends with .L), because they will have lower taxes on dividends. (Etoro taxes dividends from USA with 30% fee for some reason. This is very inconvenient for dividend investors.)
