I am trying to replicate my Degiro portfolio in InteractiveBrokers

Produkt           Symbol/ISIN   Ticker Symbol  Exchange Symbol
ISHR PAC XJPN A   IE00B52MJY50  CPXJ           EAM
VANGUARD S&P500   IE00B3XXRP09  VUSA           EAM

But when I search by ISIN in InteractiveBrokers the number of the Ticker are totally different than in Degiro:

  • 1
    It appears that these ETFs trade on multiple stock exchanges, and in different currencies.

    If your Degiro portfolio consists of securities that trade on exchanges in other countries then the CUSIPs and symbols should be different. Apr 30, 2020 at 17:47
  • In Europe they do not use CUSIPs (they are generally only used in North America) but instead use ISINs, and while CUSIPS can be a subset of ISINs it is possible for a security trading in two different currencies to have the same ISIN.

It is possible for the same security to trade on multiple exchanges with different currencies. For example, the Vanguard FTSE EM trades on:

  • the London Stock Exchange in US Dollars and British Pounds ("VDEM","VFEM"),
  • the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in Euro ("VFEM"),
  • the Swiss Exchange in Swiss Francs ("VFEM") and
  • the Mexican exchange in Mexican Peso ("VDEMN").

Your Degiro ticker is showing the price in Euro while the IB ticker is showing the price in USD.

  • I see a pattern there, you are right about the currencies, looks like Degiro is in Euros and IB is in pounds (some of them multiplied by 100 :?)

    UK tickers are typically priced in pence rather than pounds (hence the 100x multiplier)
