I am looking for an Asian Nasdaq index or something like that. Maybe investing directly in the US market where some of the largest Chinese companies IPO have taken place makes sense. Any insights?
There are a number of web sites that offer ETF information. One of them that I have used is ETFDB. It has a free screener. For example, it shows that there are 121 Asian ETFs for Developed Asia.
There are other screening choices as well. You can select an ETF and click on is holdings. That will provide the major holdings. It requires a subscription if you want to export the entire list of holdings,
