Why should I invest globally?
We are glad you asked. Consider this
- Top global brands are listed in the US. Think Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple, Zoom, and Microsoft - the brands you consume every day, yet cannot participate in their growth through Indian markets.
- Stocks in developed markets are more stable. They tend to have better corporate governance and lower information asymmetry.
- You are spending globally. Whether it's international travel, education, or spending on products like smartphones, tablets, or video subscriptions - many of your expenses are in USD, while your savings are in INR.
Investing overseas thus brings new opportunities, globalizes your portfolio, diversifies your risk, and protects you against exchange rate fluctuations.
What about the regulations and compliance?
Let's consider the three main aspects of regulations and compliance:
- Indian regulations: RBI allows overseas remittance of up to US$2,50,000 per individual per financial year. Your investments in US stocks fall under this category and are perfectly legitimate
- US regulations: US allows foreigners to easily invest in US stocks. SEC, the SEBI equivalent in US, even offers the same protections to foreigners as it does to US residents. More on that later.
- Taxes: US doesn't have a capital gains tax for foreigners. The dividends you receive are taxed at a flat 25%. The cash is deducted from the dividends (tax withholding) and filed for you, without any need for you to file US taxes separately. In India, your capital gains taxes depend on how long you held the investment for. The dividends are taxed as regular income, but you receive foreign tax credits for the tax paid in the US. Simple, right! Either way, we are here to help you with your Indian tax filings.
