I was interested in this too. But could not find broker firms in Sri Lanka who maintain accounts for retail investors in overseas stock exchanges. If someone knows about such a firm please post it here.

Sri Lankan market is growing much faster than European and North American markets. Expatriates also opt for CSE rather than those markets.

I agree with you. If Sri Lanka sustains this 8% growth trajectory (and brings inflation under control), things will get even better... There are probably more undervalued counters on the CSE than on the more 'mature' Western markets.

Even after it becomes possible to invest in equity abroad, we should be looking at growth economies like Russia & Latin America - not Europe & North America.

@Gaja: The budget proposals listed above have not yet been implemented. I am sure we will hear about it when the relevant circulars are finally issued by the CBSL. Keep in touch with the Foreign Exchange dealers at your bank; they would be the first to know...

Any particular reason for desperately looking for the information about investing in foreign financial markets?

I did invest in a middle east country's financial market but that was when the CSE was not performing well back in the years of 2005/2006. Also I could not directly invest as my investment was with a fund manager who in turn invest in the share market of that country. I still maintain my investment there but for now the best place to invest your money is non other than CSE, IMO.
