For example looking at IE00B5BMR087 and IE0031442068 (both links in German), they seem to be very similar. Both try to track the S&P 500 in the same ways, the main difference seems to be that one is distributing while the other is accumulating.
However, there is a considerable difference in the price per share (~24 vs ~240). Why is that? And does the difference matter?
It seems to me that it wouldn't matter, because if the underlying market goes up x%, 10 shares of the 24 ETF would go up the same value as 1 share of the 240 ETF. So the only difference (apart from distributing vs accumulating) would be the restriction to only be able to purchase shares in steps of 240 at a time for the more expensive ETF. But it seems odd to me that there would be such a price discrepancy (is the distribution responsible for all of that?), so I'm wondering if I'm missing something.
