List of US ETFs

From Bogleheads
Jump to: navigation, search

List of US ETFs contains a representative sample of domestic and international stock and bond Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) traded on U.S. exchanges. The listed ETFs are primarily from such major providers as iShares, SPDR, Vanguard, Schwab, and PIMCO. The list also includes exchange traded funds, exchange traded notes, and exchange traded master limited partnerships investing in the commodity markets. The list does not include short, leveraged, and double leveraged ETFs, nor does it include quasi active and active etfs.

The ticker links provide access to the ETF provider's fund page for the ETF. Wiki pages providing chart links to Vanguard ETFs are included in the tables.

The page may be helpful to taxable investors who tax loss harvest funds; the listings provide candidates for "substantially different" investments that IRS regulations require to avoid wash sales.

Refer to the following pages for ETF offerings tracking these alternate weighted index methodologies:

Commodity ETFs

Special considerations applicable to Commodity ETFs include the following:

  • These ETFs often employ varying ETF structures, such as,
    • Grantor's trusts: used especially for bullion based precious metals ETFs.
    • Exchange traded notes: it is important to realize that an ETN bears credit risk in that it is an obligation of the sponsoring bank.
    • Master limited partnership: These ETFs report income tax obligations on corporate K-1 filings, not 1099 documents. [1]
  • Special tax considerations are also applicable to commodity asset classes and fund structures:
    • Precious metals and grantor' trusts: the IRS considers precious metals to be collectibles. As such these ETFs are subject to a maximum 28% long term capital gains tax rate and a maximum 35% tax rate.
    • Commodity futures are subject to a 60/40 long term/short term blended tax obligation. Thus they have a maximum 23% long term capital gains tax rate and a maximum 23% short term maximum tax rate. Limited partnership ETFs are considered pass-through investments. Each year gains are marked-to-market and passed through to investors as a potential taxable obligation regardless of whether the shares are sold or held.
    • Exchange traded notes based on equity investments are subject to a 15% long term capital gains rate and a maximum 35% short term capital gains rate. [2]
