What's the process that I need to go through, and is there a preferred method to invest in it?
You'll need to open a trading account with a broker that has access to HK market.
After that, search for the ticker "1448.HK" to buy it.
Since the stock is the same no matter where you buy it, then we'd need to know what you mean by 'best' way to buy?
I would say interactive Brokers If its cheap commissions we're talking about.
But how would you define best?
cheap commission, good exchange rate, user experience, Good customer service?
Hey there! You can consider to use Stand Chart or FSMOne, commissions are pretty reasonable. I used to use those, before I migrated everything to Interactive Brokers. IB can help to consolidate all my holdings as you can trade in all exchanges (Except SG), and even lower commissions! And guess what - you can actually transfer your holdings from FSMOne to FB for free!
AMDtrade or IB are one of the better option. While CMC markets is an option, The downside to CMC though is its limited HK stock range which means you may not be able to buy the obscure HK stocks that catches your eyes.
I will advise against using custodian account in our local brokerages because they have high charges and monthly maintenance fees
I think i get what you mean. The best brokerage i feel is still interactive broker. With one platfrom, i can buy stocks from almost every country!
