Invest in MSCI World ETFs with DEGIRO

ETFs are popular because they make diversified investing easy. An MSCI World ETF makes it especially to diversify your portfolio due to its wide exposure. The index doesn’t focus on one industry, one country, or even one continent: it combines fractions of shares from all over the world!

Not every MSCI World ETF is the same. ETFs differ from each other in several ways, such as fund size and costs. These are the five MSCI World ETFs most traded by our clients in 2022.

What is an ETF?

ETFs, also known as trackers, are funds that follow the performance of an index, commodity, bond or composition of products. Unlike some other funds, ETFs are bought and sold on a stock exchange. Would you like to learn more about ETFs? Read our ETF article for all you need to know.

What is the MSCI World Index?

The MSCI World is an international stock index that tracks stocks from 23 countries. These are stocks of large- and mid-cap companies in developed countries with stable economies. At the time of writing (August 2022), the index tracks 1540 different companies.

US stocks make up the largest share of the MSCI World index. More than 68% of the stocks in the index come from this country. With more than 6% of the stock mix, Japan ranks second, followed by the UK with more than 4%. In terms of sectors, technology takes the lead, representing 21% of the stocks in the mix. Healthcare (14%) and financial services (13%) rank second and third, respectively.

Currently, there are 14 ETFs available on the DEGIRO platform that track the performance of the MSCI World index.

Why invest in MSCI World ETFs?

With an MSCI World ETF, you are betting on the growth of the global economy. The committee that manages the index deliberately only selects shares from countries that have a stable economy. Therefore, an MSCI World ETF gives you a relatively safe way to invest in the global economy with a single investment product.

The total expense ratio (TER) of MSCI World ETFs ranges between 0.12% and 0.50% per year. These costs are usually significantly lower than those of a managed investment fund.
