  • I see what you mean. I have deleted that paragraph. But let me clarify. It leads to huge savings if your home country does not tax dividends and capital gains. Citizens from Singapore and Switzerland (not sure) have this advantage. For Americans, unfortunately no.

  • I think I was not clear enough. Maybe that's the reason for the downvote for what I think is a reasonable question. Puzzled about the downvote. I would like to invest in these countries. This is relevant to readers who come from countries which do not tax dividends at home.

  • But these readers can just as well invest at home...

It depends on your home country. Each country has different tax treaties with the other countries. For example, if you reside in UK, you can find the treaties in:


Basically you have to find the "withholding tax treaty" that your country have with other countries. Just type that in Google adding your country of residence.

Good luck!
