I had a discussion with Michael Fritzell of Asian Century Stocks, a Swede who has been living and investing in Asia for 15 years. He runs a Substack specializing in Asian value stocks (here).

In most of Asia, investing directly in real estate is complicated for non-residents and non citizens. It’s possible in a few markets, but they are rarely attractive. Investing in local stocks on local stock exchanges is therefore an interesting alternative to get long term exposure to the region.

In the video we discussed:

09:00 Very high dividend yields in some Asian value stocks
10:20 Correlation with Western markets
12:10 A key risk in investing in Chinese stocks
17:30 Which brokerage accounts to access South East Asian markets
20:20 Investing in REITS in Asia
