How to Gain Exposure to Unusual Markets
As a relatively new investor I have little experience in buying stock outside of typical American companies and some European companies. This leaves me not knowing how to expose myself to markets such as Asia (particularly Korea, China and Japan), Latin America and Africa. As has been the case in the past my interest is in finding individual companies on my own, not investing in mutual funds. I have managed one African investment and am pondering some Latin American ones. Asia seems to be a large area of opportunity but I am not seeing easy ways to buy into companies I have interest in. I could not identify a good Japanese construction company tradinhg through ADRs after the tsunami. I am interested in learning what others are doing in trying to get a good breadth of exposure to more unusual markets.
