Title: Asian investing
Post by: tsukuba on January 01, 2021, 01:32:14 AM
Hi,
For years, and then again lately now associated with SARS-CoV2 and the faster reopening of China than the rest of world, I have been reading that the Chinese economy is growing faster and will dominate in size over the USA. 

Any experts here in Asian investing, especially for the long term (I realize there has been quite a pop in equity prices recently)?

Any recommendations, both general or specific?

Thanks

Asia is the world's most populous and an incredibly diverse continent. The numbers coming from China's economists are generally not to be trusted. I've lived in Asia - including a decade in Greater China - for 17 years, and my Hong Kong MPF (similar to 401K) is typically equally split between N. American, Asian, and world ETFs. Asian investing can be volatile as with any growing economy where figures can be suspect. Proceed with caution.

The term Sovereign Risk gets thrown around far too loosely these days in the West.

But what happens in the East is on a whole new level entirely.

Forget any specific event.  If you want to think about the likelihood or extent to which Asia will become pre-eminent in world affairs, think about this:

International and Emerging Markets is one of the few areas where I invest in active mutual funds.

Instead of going on about the reasons why, this podcast episode from Money Tree Investing (https://moneytreepodcast.com/emerging-market-investing-for-2020-and-beyond-locating-opportunities-with-tremendous-growth-potential/#.X-9BZthKiUk) sums up my thoughts.

I expect those markets to grow exponentially more over the next decade thanks to their population, emerging technology, and access to cryptocurrencies and am investing in some emerging market funds accordingly.

Although, it is a double take when reading Jack Ma/Alibaba has gone missing, attributed at this time to the iron hand of the CCP.
