Investing in Foreign Stocks

Save time and money …


Update:  Here is a book review!

Thousands of stocks trade in the United States.  Tens of thousands of stocks trade outside of the United States.  If one has more stocks from which to choose, the chances of finding a good stock may increase.

Some of these foreign stocks trade in the United States in the form of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs).  The overwhelming majority of them do not.  Thus, if one wants to invest in these companies, one must buy shares through foreign stock exchanges.

Investing in Foreign Stocks explains how to navigate some of the tax and legal implications of owning foreign stocks.

This book can save hundreds of hours of time on tax and legal research.  It may help someone avoid thousands of dollars of unexpected tax bills, failure-to-file penalties or other nasty surprises.

The book covers 25 countries:  Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

It guides the reader through what types of accounts and legal structures one should or should not use to invest in foreign stocks.  The U.S. tax considerations and reporting requirements.  Plus much, much, more.

Anyone who invests in foreign stocks or wants to invest in foreign stocks should buy this book.
