We hope you have been enjoying our articles. What we hope to achieve in Value Invest Asia is to promote the concept of value investing to the Asian community. We see Asia as a fast growing investment region. Our stock markets are still at its infancy stages compared to the developed nations. It is the perfect time to help others to understand the most proven method of investing and how to assist the general public in taken charge of their financial freedom.
Markets we are active in
The markets in Asia is complex and diverse. However, many markets are generally still not very accessible for foreign investors and have many issues with corporate governance, we will not be covering them in our articles. The main markets that you can expect us to talk about are mainly:
1) The Singapore Market
As our home market, The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) is the official index for Singapore. It tracks the performance of 30 of the main companies listed in the Singapore Exchange. There are currently about 782 companies and trusts listed in Singapore.
2) The Malaysian Market
The Malaysian market is tracked by the Kuala Lumpur Composite Index (KLSE: ^KLCI). Its main exchange is Bursa Malaysia. Currently, there are able 814 companies listed in Malaysia.
3) The Hong Kong / China Market
As one of the largest market in Asia, things happening in China will definitely have a huge impact on the region. We follow the Chinese market mainly through the Hong Kong stock exchange due to the foreign restriction for investing directly into the Chinese Market. The main index in Hong Kong is the Hang Seng Index (HKEX: ^HSI)
4) The USA Market
Throughout our articles we might be using examples from companies in the NYSE or the NASDAQ as examples to illustrate our concepts and to compare the difference between the largest stock market in the world with some of the smaller markets around Asia.
