Hi Jun Jie,
If you have a longer-term investment horizon, and am keen to get some stock exposure in a diversified and cost-efficient way, one popular strategy is to consider the iShares Core MSCI World UCITs ETF (ticker: IWDA LN) and iShares Core MSCI EM IMI UCITs ETF (ticker EIMI LN). The former offers exposure to approximately 1,600 developed market stocks, while the latter provides exposure to approximately 2,600 emerging market stocks.
Separately, China stocks are still relatively underrepresented by global stock indices (i.e. China and South Korea stocks comprise about 36% and 14% of the earlier mentioned EIMI ETF, but China’s GDP is close to 8x that of South Korea). If you wish to increase the allocation to China stocks to correct for this underrepresentation, iShares Core MSCI China ETF (ticker 2801 HK) is worth considering as it provides exposure to China companies across both onshore and offshore stock exchanges.
