Trump back in power? Consider a global investment layout.
02-28 11:44uSMART

On Monday night (January 15th), Donald Trump easily won the Iowa Republican Caucus. If Trump returns to power, it could have significant implications for certain countries and regions. Reflecting on Trump's policy orientation and actions during his tenure, I personally remain highly cautious regarding the Chinese and Hong Kong markets, as well as U.S.-listed Chinese stocks. I suggest everyone consider a global investment layout.

In the realm of global investment, Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) serve as a popular investment tool, offering advantages such as diversification, low cost, flexibility, and low entry barriers, making them an ideal choice for investors seeking global asset allocation. Below, we will explore why it is necessary to consider a global investment ETF layout and the advantages it brings.

1.Asset Diversification and Risk Mitigation:

A global investment ETF layout provides investors with extensive asset diversification. By investing in ETFs that cover different regions, industries, and asset classes worldwide, investors can access a broader range of investment opportunities and reduce the risk associated with adverse impacts from specific regions or industries.

2.Global Economic Growth and Opportunity Capture:

A global investment ETF layout enables investors to participate in global economic growth and opportunities in emerging markets. Economic growth levels and market performances may vary across different countries and regions. By investing in global ETFs, investors can leverage these variations to capture growth opportunities on a global scale.

The strategy targets are as follows:


Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF


Xtrackers MSCI Japan Currency-Hedged Equity ETF




iShares Global Healthcare ETF


SPDR Bloomberg Barclays High Yield Bond ETF


Global X U.S. Infrastructure Development ETF


Invesco Semiconductor ETF


Schwab U.S. Large-Cap Growth ETF


Vanguard FTSE Pacific ETF


Vanguard Emerging Markets Government Bond ETF

3.Cost-effectiveness and Liquidity:

Trading ETFs and derivatives in Hong Kong does not incur stamp duty, which means grid traders can save significant trading costs through multiple buy and sell transactions, thereby enhancing trading returns. Additionally, ETFs have good liquidity due to their open-ended structure, allowing investors to flexibly adjust their investment portfolios as needed.

uSMART HK is a licensed securities broker authorized by the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission. With continuous investments from well-known financial institutions in Hong Kong and strategic investments from Chow Tai Fook Enterprises, it has a solid background and provides security assurance. It is an excellent tool for domestic investors to trade overseas ETFs. It offers various intelligent order functions, including grid trading, and allows trading of leveraged short ETFs such as SQQQ.

Here are some popular overseas ETFs:

  • Nikkei Index ETF: Tracks the Nikkei 225 Index, representing the largest Japanese companies listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
