Risks of Global and International Funds

In today’s post I’ll be continuing to talk about Global and International Funds. In this 3rd part of these posts I’ll be talking about the risk of these funds. These funds can be risky due to the fact of economic stability. With stocks in multiple countries you’re more susceptible to economic crashes. Sometimes different countries trade securities less frequently. This can cause less liquidity making it harder to buy and sell securities. The last risk I’m going to explain is that you, the investor, may not have as much information. Companies in international places may not be followed by financial analysts. The investor might have to just go off information they can scrape up.
