In the last post I gave a brief summary of what a Global/International stock fund is. It’s important to understand the advantages and risks with these funds, in this post I’ll tell you the advantages of these funds. These funds are a great way to add diversification to your investment portfolio. These funds usually own many individual stocks in a variety of countries and industries. Global/International funds have great capital appreciation and income. The stocks in the funds have a broad variety of income sources than investing solely in U.S. companies. These funds have access to professional management. Skilled experts are hard to come by for smaller investors. The funds are really convenient. You can automatically reinvest with any income or capital gain.
