Foreign Investments

Don’t be a homer, invest in foreign lands

“By definition, index funds provide the most diversification in each asset class and eliminate all uncompensated risk.  In contrast, active fund managers rely on less diversification to beat the index.  The managers either limit their holdings to a few favorable securities or they avoid unfavorable sectors.” – Rick Ferri, The Power of Passive Investing. The concept of diversification is certainly nothing new when it comes to investing, actually, I wrote about it recently here discussing some of my favourite international equity Exchange ...
