asset-allocation-pie-chartIt is important to diversify your investment portfolio to ensure that your investments continue to perform well when specific industries or economies suffer economic hardships and setbacks. However, how do you protect yourself from hardships and setbacks suffered by an entire country’s economy? The answer is again diversification. When diversifying across countries, one option is to utilize a global asset allocation fund.

A global asset allocation fund can be many things, but it is often a type of mutual fund. In the past, managers of such funds attempted to primarily find and exploit a few large bets. However, with today’s economic uncertainty, a diversified approach has become more popular. Richard Cayne Thailand manages such funds for private investors.

When to Think Global

Global funds are best utilized as a part of a diverse investment in a variety of mutual fund types. Such a diversified strategy makes equal or near equal use of global, large cap, small cap and mid cap funds. Top performing global funds can be consulted on with the assistance of Richard Cayne Meyer International Thailand who understands the importance of diversification and offers a variety of fund strategies to help encourage portfolio diversity.

Such diversification can happen as soon as you are willing to take on a diversity of risk. There is no magic amount that makes global funds a better or worse idea. However, minimum enrollment amounts for various funds may limit newer investors with smaller sums at their discretion. Global asset allocation can be higher risk than domestic allocation, but there are also some global funds that perform on par with their domestic counterparts. This makes the question of when to start global diversification difficult to answer. Conservative investors may prefer to start with domestic and go global as they accumulate wealth, while more enterprising investors may decide to start with global and diversify with closer-to-home investments. Financial professionals such as Richard Cayne Thailand can help investors choose the investing strategy that works best for them.

Why Some Consider Global Funds Higher Risk

The primary reason that finance experts often regard global funds as higher risk investments has little to do with finance and much more to do with international politics. People tend to have a better understanding of what is going on in their own country, and this creates anxiety about investing outside of the country. It is true that political tensions between countries affect the economies of those countries, but the right understanding of international politics all but eliminates this aspect of global risk. Richard Cayne Meyer International Thailand is a multinational company dedicated to researching current international trends.
