    How much do you plan to invest and what are your objectives? Are you planning to make a lump sum investment or contribute regularly?

    And a few other important questions:

    In which market do you want to invest? (e.g. which stock exchange) this will determine your options of accounts and charges.
    Country of residency (I assume HK)
    Country of Citizenship (can have a big impact if your country has global tax etc...)
    Country of Tax residency
    Looking at individual stocks/Funds/ETF's?

    Starting point should be indeed doing research (as you are doing now) account/charges etc... comes only later once you know what you want.

    One of my coworkers was telling me she bought a lot of China Evergrande stocks about half a year ago... Based on someone's internet recommendation.

    Be careful what and who you believe!

    HI,

    Currently in Hong Kong.
    I am planning in coins and shares as well.

    I plan around 200k HKD.
    There is no global taxation so I can actually take benefit of it.

    But which market? If HK or US I would just stick with one of the banks in HK, other markets then it depends...
    Coins I can't help you with but there are other threads on this forum talking about the different crypto platforms.

    But first thing do your research and there is a ton of information on this website about different asset classes and also about platforms and fees. Just use the search button or scroll through the "Business & Finances" sub-forum.

    This is the type of advice you need to avoid on the Internet.

    The least risky and with the greatest chance of reward is HK# 3020.
    All other choices are less good.
