Re: Questions from a brazilian investor

I didn't touch US domiciled ETFs vs Irish domiciled ETFs on my previous posts, but the Accumulating (Acc) versions of the latter are more tax efficient for Brazilian investors.

Re: Questions from a brazilian investor

Hey! I'm also a 20-something Brazilian who just started investing in international ETFs, so I faced many of the same questions you have.
