    Global tracker funds incl Emerging markets 13th Jan 18 at 9:47 AM
    Hi guys,

    Looking into these at the moment and found these so far:
    Vanguard FTSE All-World ETF
    HSBC FTSE All World Index

    Any more to consider? Thinking of holding one of these alongside a global bong tracker and property investment trust/ paif.

    Thanks,
    Chris.

    You might want to compare FTSE All World with MSCI ACWI and then choose a fund or ETF for your preferred index.

    An option would be to bolt on an EM index to your main global tracker to give you whatever ratio you were looking for.

    Fidelity, ishares, Vangauard and L&G all do them at low cost.

    It covers developed and emerging markets and large, mid and small cap companies. This would be my preferred global index fund. As far as I know this is the only tracker of that index.

    Thanks Linton and A_T, that does look like a very good option!
    Thanks username12345678, yes I had thought about bolting on EM to a global tracker that doesn't cover EM but thought I'd see if I could do it all in one first.
    Now to find a global bond (not bong!) tracker to pair it with :-). Are there any here that cover EM? I can't tell if Vanguard Global Bond Index does- not in it's top 10 holdings at least.
