How Indians Can Benefit from Investing in the US Stock Market with Viram Shah of Vested Finance

Season 5, Episode 89,  Oct 08, 2020, 12:00 AM

This week in LongShorts, we explore the intriguing trend of Indians investing in US stock markets.

Viram Shah has been helping Indians invest in the US stock markets through Vested Finance, a company he started in 2018. 

We (at TRANSFIN.) have always found this theme rather interesting, considering US equities' global leadership when it comes to innovation and market dominance (exhibit A). Aside from the obvious diversification and foreign exchange market benefits (in most cases), listed US companies often set the tone for the rest of the world when it comes to superior disclosures, liquidity, and price discovery. 

Hence in this chat we walk through Viram's take on this opportunity, as well as throw light on the constraints facing Indians who want to broaden their equity exposure and risk exposure beyond borders, ranging across operational, regulatory, or taxation domains. 

On the way we also take stock of the ebbs and flows characterising markets at-large especially in a post Covid paradigm. 

Hope you have fun listening in.
