RESOURCES TO HELP SHAPE YOUR FINANCIAL FUTURE

Two important benefits to international investing, regardless of market conditions: diversification and the potential for enhanced returns.

  • Global markets do not move in lockstep, so diversifying across countries helps lower portfolio volatility.
     
  • International equities can be strong generators of income and have tended to offer a higher yield than their U.S.-only portfolios.
     
  • Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and mutual funds can simplify diversification across global markets.
