Historically, U.S. stock market has outpaced international equity markets by a wide margin, raising persistent questions about whether it still makes sense to invest in non-U.S. markets. However, 2020 has been a really different year for everyone out there with big news affecting international markets, markets crash, several assets reaching their ATH while others are barely supporting their own weight…
In the name of diversification i think it makes sense to invest in some international markets out there together with US stock market assets. Even SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) generally consider international investments beneficial, in terms of diversification of portfolio, reduced volatility and growth potential, however, buying foreign stocks is not free of risks and if we take into consideration the actual pandemic scenario maybe looks really “too risky” to invest in foreign markets…so do you think is it worth it or not?
