As an expatriate worker (i.e. working in a country other than my country of citizenship and more often than not in a third world country), I face different constraints and benefits than the average Joe when it comes to investing.
Constraints of interest (that I have faced) are:
difficulty in reliable trading caused by poor communications systems i.e. must invest in the medium/long term
difficulty with time zones i.e. market open when normal sleep time
difficulty with currencies
difficulty with taxes
benefits are mostly better tax-protected salaries
This subject is meant for expats to discuss these issues and to share some good investment ideas. Hopefully we can all benefit from this.
Lost in Africa
PS I may start a model portfolio for stocks that suit our investment style. My bias is medium risk/high rewards but long term investments but I am open to suggestions.
