Most retail investors that trade on their own already noticed starting 2018. As a European, it’s not possible to buy US-based Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) anymore. If you were trying to find out how to get these US-based ETFs in Europe, I hate to burst your bubble, but there is no straight forward for this after a new ETF regulation in Europe (no, options aren’t straightforward). The major culprit? PRIIPs.

Again? Yep, sorry. Julia and Philip just do such an amazing job that I can’t help but share.
The usual disclaimer that their video is mainly for the US market kinda applies here as well. Though it’s less so because they explain the concept of Mutual funds which is the same globally.
