Foreign stocks

You can buy shares in leading companies from all around the world, including Hong Kong, mainland China and the US. With a global portfolio, you'll have the chance to profit from market volatility and earn dividends as you share in the company's growth.

What are stocks?

Stocks, also known as shares, are small pieces of a company. A company will sell these small pieces to investors as a way of raising money to use to grow the business.

Stocks can be bought and sold, usually on stock exchanges. Buying stock in a company makes you a shareholder, and means that you own a small percentage of the company. Shareholders can earn money when the company goes up in value, especially if it decides to pay out dividends*, but there are operational risks to consider. 

*Note: Even if a company has a profitable year, they have no obligation to pay out dividends. It's up to each individual company to decide whether to pay them.
