Buying Xiaomi American Depositary Receipts (ADRs):

  • This is the simplest and most common way for US investors to buy Xiaomi stock.
  • ADRs represent shares of a foreign company (in this case, Xiaomi) that are traded on a US stock exchange.
  • Xiaomi’s ADR trades under the ticker symbol XIACY on the OTC Markets.

Buying Xiaomi shares directly on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX):

  • This method allows you to buy actual shares of Xiaomi (stock code: 1810), but it’s a more complex process and not recommended for all investors.
  • It typically involves opening an international brokerage account that allows trading on the HKEX and navigating potential currency conversion and other fees.
