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.

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.
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.
We strive to offer the best product by being innovative and staying on top of safety and security. These awards are proof of this hard work and the reason we are the market leader in Europe.
