Benefits of Owning Foreign Stocks

  • Globalization. Business happens all over the world and opportunities have followed.
  • Diversification. There are times when your economy may not offer the best opportunities for investment. Looking abroad gives you other choices and spreads some of your risk over a wider geographic area and multiple economies.
  • Uncommon returns. While there is risk involved foreign stocks may offer the chance to participate in extraordinary gains in rapidly growing economies.

London is regarded by many to be the financial centre of the world, and the UK’s stable political and regulatory structure has encouraged some of the largest companies in the world to list here.

The London Stock Exchange is the most international of all the world’s stock exchanges, with around 3,000 companies from over 70 countries admitted to trading on its markets. In turn investors can find a variety of companies exposed to fast growing and emerging economies listed on the exchanged.

The London Stock Exchange is comprised of two different stock markets: the Main Market and the Alternative Investment Market (AIM). The Main Market is solely for larger more established companies.

Approximately 1,800 of the LSE's company listings trade on the Main Market, and the total market capitalisation is over £3,500 billion. The Alternative Investment Market on the other hand trades in small-caps, or new enterprises with high growth potential. Over 1,060 companies list on this market, with a total capitalisation of £37 billion.

It's not hard to understand the world's enthusiasm for US investments. No other international financial market comes close to the size, accessibility, transparency and liquidity of the US stock markets.

The value of share trading on NYSE alone for the whole year of 2005, was 2.4 times of London, 30.4 times of Hong Kong and 3.2 times of Tokyo.1 Comparing with year 2002, US markets are the biggest in terms of turnover as well as value. That means there's a very high chance of finding a buyer or seller of any particular stock at any given time. It is obvious therefore that the US stock markets offer greater diversification and greater s;ection

With more than 6,097 companies to select from, you can invest in major companies and brands from all over the world who list their shares on US financial markets including as American Depository Receipts.

 

 

 

 

The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) is home to over 2000 companies and provides investors with companies that benefit from a relatively high-growth and low-inflation economy supported by robust political and economic institutions, and an internationally competitive business sector.

Australia now ranks as the 13th largest economy in the world (measured by GDP), and the 3rd largest in the Asia Pacific region.

This firm international standing is reflected by the fact that Australia’s three largest trading partners – China, Japan and the United States - are also the three largest economies in the world. Its two largest investment partners - the US and UK – are home to the world’s largest capital markets.
Such solid trade and investment relations have helped see real economic growth average 3.0% per annum over the past decade, positioning Australia as one of the stronger performers among developed countries during the period.
