Open an investment account in the USA - it's fairly straightforward. I don't know your tax system in france, but you can invest in the US as an individual or an entity, probably worth talking w/ a tax attorney about how to do it - it's certainly done by others.



Don't think it's that straightforward. Probably need a SSN and there will be tax withholding of earnings


Process here. Not trivial but not insurmountable.
