Re: What would you do if ETF was to expensive

Ok I'll research that, but each international transfer to them would cost me 105 USD.

What about my bond allocation question?

Re: What would you do if ETF was to expensive

I have TDAmeritrade, but transfering money outside of the country is really expensive.

Re: What would you do if ETF was to expensive

What about Bond allocation? I'm currently investing in Argentinian Bonds as they don't pay income nor wealth tax. Their denomination is USD. As I know you will ask, yes there are inflation tied bonds in pesos and also dollar linked bonds in pesos ARS (you buy them in pesos, and they give out pesos, ...

Re: What would you do if ETF was to expensive

I'm not an expert on this, but here's a link to an article in the wiki about why non-residents might be better off in Irish domiciled etfs unless their country has a tax treaty with the US: https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Nonresident_alien_with_no_US_tax_treaty_%26_Irish_ETFs Thanks, I know about t...

Re: What would you do if ETF was to expensive

Right, that's what I was thinking. 1.8% is a lot but doing long term investment so.... I hope it washes itself out

What would you do if ETF was to expensive

I can access VT from my broker in Argentina. But the cost for buying and selling is 1.8%. Also I have to pay Income tax for dividends and capital gains. But if I invest in local assets, I only pay 0.6% for buying and selling and no income tax on anything. The problems is, they are local assets. Is t...

Bond portion for Non US person

Hello, I want to know thoughts about my Bond portion of the portfolio. Being from argentina I would be taxed for owning, selling and earning dividends on any foreign bond or Bond ETF. In fact for the interests I'd be taxed twice, once from the bond domicile and once from my country. On the other han...

Re: NRA avoiding tax withholding [Argentina resident]

Interesting link TED. I have to find out if we do have access to Irish ETF in Argentina. We don't have any ETF in Argentina right now, but it is in the plans for the near future I believe. We have CEDEARs here, they are like ADRs but consist of deposits of US stocks in Argentina. So for exaple we ha...

Re: NRA avoiding tax withholding [Argentina resident]

Thanks for both replies. I'll drop one more thing as Erwin mentioned the word custodian. I asked about that was told that the assets would be in custody in Argentina, not with an American custodian. If the custodian is not US based, then it is up to the bank policies. Let me give you an example: I ...

Re: NRA avoiding tax withholding [Argentina resident]

Hi grabiner, I understand that argentina doesn't do a tax credit like that, it is just that it taxes the foreign income after foreign taxation. I'll double check on that just in case. But my question was more towards knowing if somebody here knows if the US would tax the investment, even though the ...

NRA avoiding tax withholding [Argentina resident]

Hello Bogleheads, I've been reading a lot(here and elsewhere) and really bought into the investment philosophy. I'm from Argentina but last year I went for it and opened an account in TDAmeritrade in the USA to buy VTI and VXUS in the proportions that FTSE All-World Index establishes. There's that a...
