What are the highlights of this? From a quick look there are a few interesting additions for my portfolio.
IEMG - Emerging Markets. At 0.18% expense ratio it is the same as Vanguard's VWO. But how is IEMG different from the more expensive EEM?
IEFA is also a decent option if you are buying just a little and don't want to pay $8 to buy.
IFGL looks like a great replacement for WPS in the international real estate sector. Larger assets under management and more average volume and typically lower bid ask spread means the ETF is cheaper to trade on many measures (in addition to paying no commission). VNQI from vanguard blows the pants off both of these in terms of expense ratio but $8/trade can add up if you are accumulating and buying $500 or $1000 at a time each month like I often do if I need to top off my international real estate allocation.
I'm not familiar with Ishares "Core" funds. Does Core mean anything other than "these are low expense ratio ETFs that we are lining up against our competitors?"
Does anyone have a list of the old commission free funds and the new ones? What was added and what was taken away?
Great news for us fidelity investors! Wish I knew about this before I did some new investments this morning...
