Question: Why not the US market?
Conventionally, the US market is usually chosen as the top destination for stock investors to invest in global corporations such as Amazon, Nike, Tesla, Berkshire Hathaway … etc, just to name a few.
Undisputedly, China is rising fast and gave birth to many world class corporations such as Alibaba, Li Ning, Xpeng, Ping An … etc. We may even make comparisons between them to see which of these companies could give the best value to us, as value investors. But, there is a problem.
You can invest in Chinese corporations by buying their A-shares. But, here is the thing. Are you Chinese-literate? Do you want to study their Annual Reports that are written only in Mandarin Chinese?
If not, your best alternative would be to invest in their H-shares. This is because stocks listed in Hong Kong are required to issue Annual Reports that are written in English. That is why Hong Kong acts as a gateway to the world when it comes to investing in Chinese companies.
How about Singapore?
Singapore, like Hong Kong, is a great place to shop for dividend paying stocks as their tax structures are friendly for dividend investors as compared to the US. In addition, Singapore is also a place to find companies that are both regional and global and thus, offering investors a platform to invest abroad.
As exciting as these markets sound, it is wise to not assume that all stocks listed in both markets are automatically great investments. Thus, it would be ideal for all to learn the art of investing first before venturing into them.
