Aussie Domiciled → Donald Duck

You mentioned in your last podcast that you should try to invest in Australian ETFs to avoid US taxes – how and where do you find what ETFs are the same – the codes. E.g. VTS is equivalent to IVV. Would like to know what the equivalent to VUG; VEU;VGS;VOO

Investing in Quality → Mugz

What is quality investing and how do you see this being a powerful addition to an ETF portfolio? Should quality be included in a portfolio’s Core, and if so, what splits would work well?

Accounting for Tax → KC

I was just wondering if you guys could do an ep on how to account for tax when investing I.e when I put my numbers into a compound interest calculator, how much of this will I actually be able to keep? Thanks!

Rebalancing ETFs → Belinda

Hi, I have invested money in the iShares IVV ETF. I am wondering if the holdings in this ETF can change over time. For example, if one company folds, or another emerges on the S&P500, can they be added/removed from the ETF to keep it competitive? I have not been able to find this information online.
