CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Global investing isn't new. In fact, investors have been looking to overseas
markets for hundreds of years, and with good reason. A global portfolio can
bestow innumerable rewards on the savvy investor, yet many US investors remain
woefully under-exposed to foreign equities. Despite the fact that US equity
markets make up less than half of world markets, only a small portion of our
investment dollars are allocated overseas. Even the most sophisticated
investors have been deterred by misconceptions about the risks associated with
owning foreign stocks or a lack of information about foreign markets. But the
notion investment options are limited by borders is antiquated and downright
detrimental to successful investing.
Once considered the playground of only the ultra-rich or institutional
investors, global investing is fast becoming not only possible, but a
necessity, for every investor. As part of Fisher Investments Press, Own the
World introduces readers to the vast advantages of seeking investment
opportunities all over the planet. Own the World provides investors with tools
to build a global portfolio and points out potential hurdles to avoid. It also
educates readers on the nuts and bolts of foreign markets, how to easily
understand them, and vehicles for investing there. By detailing the vast and
currently underappreciated benefits of global investing and the distinct
advantages of a global approach, as well as common pitfalls to avoid, Own the
World can help readers to tread more confidently into global markets as they
look to optimize their investment results.
