Outperforming “the market” isn’t so difficult. Just go to a different, better-performing market.

Most financial advisers are less informed about offshore real estate or stocks. They’ll say you can’t consistently outperform “the market” over the long term.

Such advisers lack creativity. As international investors, we aren’t limited to the constraints of one single market anymore.

Your range of investments aren’t restricted to your home country. In the 21st Century, you can access dozens of markets without ever needing to visit them. 

Foreign stock exchanges host a completely different set of opportunities that you won’t ever find at home. Buying property in Asia is also an excellent way to further diversify your portfolio.

True, investing in foreign countries is often less straightforward. A small amount of effort goes a long way toward enhancing your portfolio’s balance of risk and return though.

InvestAsian’s goal is simple: we help eliminate entry barriers across Asia’s emerging and frontier economies.

Asia is the only continent on earth where global financial centers, like Singapore and Hong Kong, sit alongside rapidly growing frontier markets like Cambodia and Vietnam.

A wise investor would never position their whole net worth into a single stock – it’s way too risky.

Then why do most people never buy property or stocks outside their home country? Just like owning a single asset is risky, putting all your money in one country will expose you to its specific currency, economic, and regulatory dangers.

By owning foreign property and stocks, you’ll reduce overall risk while generating higher returns as well.

Some people falsely believe that foreign assets are riskier than “buying local”. However, anyone who owned equities back in 2008 should know the opposite is true.

For example, Vietnam hasn’t suffered a single recession in over two decades. They skipped the Asian Financial Crisis of the 1990s, missed the tech bubble in the 2000s, and even outgrew the most recent global recession.

Vietnam’s case isn’t abnormal for a frontier market either. Other countries with a similar history of avoiding recessions include Cambodia, Laos, Bangladesh, and the Philippines.

We could list off dozens of other countries with a tendency to skip recessions. But instead of making a list, we built a company.

That’s why InvestAsian exists. We find property, stocks, private equity, and other opportunities in places where few investors look. 


We aren’t a typical expat-run investment firm. Some companies exist solely to overcharge foreign clients while profiting from their lack of familiarity with Asian markets.

Our investments are managed and their fees are based on performance. InvestAsian’s goal is making profit for our clients. Not selling poorly-built condos with a 30% “foreign premium” added on top.

Furthermore, we’re integrated into Asia’s business communities, speak the languages, and work alongside local experts. Don’t let the wrong people advise you on investing in Asia.
