For residents of certain countries, EU-domiciled ETFs turn into a complex and expensive tax nightmare.
Meanwhile thanks to PRIIPS, EU residents can no longer buy non-EU-domiciled ETFs since 2018 or so. US-domiciled ETFs for example were generally taxed like shares.
Has anyone had much success mostly-replicating a passive ETF with a widely diversified pies, while getting the tax treatment of regular shares?
Or do you find it too difficult to manage? Or are your returns much worse than the target ETF itself?
