Take Better Risk in International Equities

November 2020 

There are several tools that can potentially reduce volatility and make investors more comfortable increasing their international allocations.


One-third: That’s about how much international developed markets (IDM) represent in the equity universe. IDM also account for about 20% of global GDP. Yet the typical US investor’s portfolio has only 13% international exposure.1  

Sources: MSCI, IMF, and ICI as of 9/30/20.


Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. ● Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political and economic developments. These risks may be greater for investments in emerging markets.
