If you’re visiting this page, you may have already made a big decision about investing in the United States: You plan to do it. At a minimum, you’re considering it. Maybe you are investing in the United States for the first time, or maybe as an addition to a growing U.S. portfolio. In either case, you will be in plentiful company.
If you’ve decided to invest, the next steps are to decide when, where, and how – and to proceed with a firm sense of why.
Don’t let the title of this document mislead you. There are certainly more than 10 questions U.S. investors should consider asking. But each of these 10 can lead to at least 10 more … and 10 more … and so on. As long as you have a single dollar invested in the United States, you likely won’t run out of questions to explore. This is a place to begin.
Asking these questions should be an exercise in analysis, not paralysis. If you perceive an attractive U.S. investment opportunity, time is probably a critical factor. The diligence this document suggests, and more, need not be a source of delay.
You’ve already made the decision to move. Making the right move takes the right resources and a clear eye. In answering the many questions posed by a U.S. investment, it helps to enlist allies. People who know the ground are valuable. People who know the ground and who have been through this process before, even more so.
In many ways, for many reasons, the United States has long represented a frontier for people and institutions around the world. The challenges inherent in coming here are very different from what they used to be. But as you embark on this journey, you’re in good company.
