Seoul-headquartered LG Energy Solution is preparing to go public on the Korea Exchange. While an official date has yet to be set, US investors can prepare by scoping out their international investment options. Here’s what we know so far — and how to buy in once LG Energy Solution launches.
LG Energy Solution will only be available on the Korea Exchange, which makes it more challenging for US investors to buy in. Challenging — but not impossible. Here are three ways to gain exposure to this battery maker’s stock.
One of the easiest ways to invest in South Korean stocks is to invest in exchange-traded funds (ETFs) with exposure to Asian markets. Keep your eye on ETFs that invest in South Korean stocks, including:
These funds won’t turn you into an LG Energy Solution shareholder per se — at least not directly. But you will gain exposure to South Korean stocks.
Another option for those interested in backing LG Energy Solution is purchasing an American Depositary Receipt (ADR). These are certificates that represent shares of international stock that can be bought from a domestic account — no international brokerage account required.
Now, not all foreign stock is available as an ADR, but given the press surrounding LG Energy Solution’s IPO, there’s a good chance it’ll be available as an ADR. To invest, you’ll need a domestic brokerage account.
An international brokerage account is the most direct way to invest in foreign stock. But most US platforms don’t offer them. And even those that do — like Interactive Brokers and Fidelity — don’t offer access to the South Korean markets.
Why? Well, South Korea places restrictions on foreign investors buying stock, which means that to invest, you’ll need to conduct your own research and fill out the appropriate paperwork. This option is best left to advanced investors who plan to invest in South Korean stocks on a regular basis and/or make high-dollar investments.
Bottom line: Investing internationally presents a unique opportunity but can be a hassle. If you’d prefer to invest in stocks that are more accessible, check out our top 5 buzzworthy IPO picks to watch.
