What I want know is, how this new russell ETF is better than a ASX200 ETF? I know the russell invests in 50 companies. Because the Aussie market is small, wouldn't this new ETF be mainly banks and miners?
Better depends on what you're looking for in a investment. so not better per say, different.
So instead of buying stocks based on market cap as an ASX200 ETF probably would, it uses the above criteria to weight. Stocks would more likely be finance coys & banks, Miners don't generally give decent dividends.
Not sure how paying high dividends and tax deferral work hand in hand. I'd much rather the share price go up and a minor dividend paid, but thats just me.
