Assuming there two ETFs A and B from two different companies. Both have in their fact-sheet that they use the same index, physical replication, have the same TER, have the same currency, the same type of distribution and the the same rebalancing interval.
Is there any way one of them could be "better"? Is the company of B actually allowed to do something different/"smarter" than the company which manages B?
I tried to find two examples:
- IE00B4L5Y983 : iShares Core MSCI World UCITS ETF USD (Acc)
- IE00BJ0KDQ92 : Xtrackers MSCI World Index UCITS ETF 1C
What is the same:
- Index: MSCI World
- Replication: Physical
- TER: 0.19% / 0.20% (for this question, please assume they are the same - I know that lower is better)
- Currency: USD
- Type of distribution: Accumulating
- Rebalancing-Intervall: Quarterly
