I am considering going through my DBS Treasures wealth management account to buy either a Vanguard HK-listed ETF (like 3140.hk) or buy something similar on the LSE (like an Irish-domiciled ETF such as VUSD).
For 3140, there would be a HKSE related charges, as well as dividend collection fee that DBS charges. Would there be a dividend collection fee for the LSE-listed ETF? For LSE-listed ETFs, are there exchange fees, clearing fees, etc (like the HKSE-related charges applicable for 3140)?
In the DBS fee schedule, it is not easy to tell whether the dividend collection fees apply to only the HK market, or the overseas markets as well.
Despite the higher trading commission for buying a foreign-listed ETF, I am leaning towards buying something like VUSD rather than 3140, due to low liquidity and higher expense ratio of 3140, but I want to make sure there's no hidden "gotcha"s somewhere in terms of costs if I use DBS.
Thanks in advance for any insights on the differences.
