Significant sale event happened today due to our ongoing efforts to restructure and simplify our portfolios. This time round, we are selling most of the overlapping Foreign Equity and Bond ETFs and getting rid of our exposure to GBP and EUR. Which means that going forward, we will only be purchasing 2 Foreign Equity ETFs – Vanguard FTSE All-World UCITS ETF (VWRD on LSE) and Vanguard FTSE All-World High Dividend Yield UCITS ETF (VHYD on LSE). The holdings of these 2 Foreign Equity ETFs still overlap quite a bit but my wife is purchasing the former while I’m buying the latter in our respective portfolios. And our only foreign currency exposure is to the USD. Clean, neat and easy to track & monitor the growth progress.

These are the Foreign Equity and Bond ETFs we sold today:

  1. Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VUSD on LSE)

  3. Vanguard FTSE 100 UCITS ETF …
