Why invest in US shares?
A diversified portfolio includes shares in a range of different companies, sectors, and countries. US exchanges give you a huge variety to choose from.
The exchanges in the US have the biggest market capitalisation (total value of shares that can be traded) in the world.
Many multinational companies take advantage of the scale of US stock exchanges. So when you invest in the US, a lot of that money ends up around the world.
The Nasdaq mainly trades companies related to digital technology, as well as some financial, consumer, biotech, and industrial companies. Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Tesla all trade on this exchange.
New York Stock Exchange
Located on Wall Street in Manhattan, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is the largest stock exchange in the world by market capitalisation. Many of the oldest publicly traded US companies are on this exchange.
Chicago Board Options Exchange
The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) is the second largest US equities operator. Investment options include exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and indexes covering areas like social media.
