Spanning all the way from Tokyo to Istanbul, the Asian continent has a long history of rapid growth.

Yet investing in Asia isn't straightforward. There's a lot of variance between its 50 different countries.

One time, I was trying to figure things out too. Back in the 2000s, I started off investing in "Asia-focused" ETFs and mutual funds that tracked a broad index.

I eventually moved to Asia and began exploring stocks, real estate, and private equity options on the ground.

Soon, it became clear that buying ETFs and stocks listed in New York isn't the best way to invest in Asia. It simply can't compete with the real thing.

I've spent over a decade investing in Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, Cambodia, and elsewhere.

These are among the world's fastest-growing countries. But you can't access them with your brokerage account at home.

Quite frankly, Fidelity or Schwab won't let you trade stocks in Vietnam. Nor will anyone else outside Asia.

Having a local brokerage account is required if you're looking to invest in Asia's emerging and frontier markets.

We can help with that. And practically everything else.

If you'd like advice about investing in Asia, we can help point you in the right direction, avoid any mistakes, and find the right assets for your own personal goals.

Why Invest in Asia?

With a majority of the world population, Asia's four billion inhabitants are primed to make it the world's new economic center.

Be on the right side of history. The 19th century was Britain's. The 20th century belonged to America. And the 21st will almost undoubtedly be Asia's turn. 

Making Your Portfolio Truly Global


Discovery & Analysis

Each client is unique. We'll learn more about your overall investment goals whether you're seeking high dividend yields, capital appreciation, preservation of wealth, or something completely different.


Setting Up Your Brokerage Account

We'll remotely open your offshore brokerage account. This gives you access to stocks in places like Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and other high-growth markets that a brokerage in your home country won't support trading in.


Creating Your Custom Stock Portfolio

After your offshore brokerage account is set up, we'll then create an Asia-focused stock portfolio tailored to your specific needs. Your portfolio also comes with a full report and custom tracker.


Diversification & Enhancement

Stocks in Asia aren't the only way to grow and preserve your wealth. We can advise you on further enhancing your holdings with international real estate, private equity offerings, and more.

What can I expect from InvestAsian Consulting?

Our goal is to diversify your holdings into Asian markets by creating a custom portfolio. We include the services below as standard:

- Remotely opening an offshore brokerage account with a reputable firm in either Singapore or Hong Kong.

- Creating a custom, Asia-focused stock portfolio that is personalized to your specific investment needs and risk tolerance.

- Two separate 30 minute phone consultations with Reid Kirchenbauer to find the best way to proceed, ensure successful implementation, and answer any questions.

How will opening a brokerage account in Asia help me?

By opening an account in Singapore or Hong Kong, you will gain access to stocks that are otherwise closed to anyone without an Asia-focused brokerage.

For example, brokers based in Europe or North America do not support exchanges in frontier markets like Vietnam and Indonesia. Our suggested brokerage firms support trading in over a dozen counties, including places that are very difficult to access.

How does creating a custom stock portfolio help me?

Holding a portfolio of stocks in Asia is a crucial first step towards a full diversification plan.

Stocks have remained the top-performing asset class for a century. Yet while valuation metrics are largely unattractive in developed nations, emerging and frontier markets in Asia host undervalued equities in high-growth sectors like fintech and e-commerce.

The custom stock portfolio we'll create for you is 100% unique and based on your own set of circumstances including age, risk tolerance, and a variety of other factors.

How is InvestAsian Consulting different?

We aren't vendors who sell one single service. A realtor in Thailand will only try to sell you a condo in Thailand. Meanwhile, a bank employee will suggest their own financial products and those they stand to make a commission from.

InvestAsian Consulting, on the other hand, is focused on the overall picture. We create return-optimized, risk averse portfolios serving the needs of investors. Our main focus is performance and we don’t charge any hidden fees.

Will any travel be necessary to implement my plan?

No. Our banking relationships in Hong Kong and Singapore help us open accounts for our clients remotely without the need to travel.
