Why the U.S.

No other financial market is as large, accessible, transparent, and liquid as the U.S. market. Its transaction volume, market capitalization, and number of listed companies make this market a unique investment opportunity for international investors.


Better capitalization

The U.S. stock markets represent the biggest single concentration of wealth in history. Together, the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ comprise the deepest financial market in the world.
