Ken Fisher on the Benefits of Investing Globally
Fisher Investments’ founder, Executive Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer Ken Fisher believes a globally diversified investment strategy offers investors the chance to achieve long-term success with lower volatility relative to a domestically focused strategy.
According to Ken, many investors potentially miss good investment opportunities by only investing within their home countries. Thinking globally opens up your investing universe, and the additional diversification can help investors reduce the negative impact of country or industry specific factors. Given that U.S and foreign returns tend to be similar in the long term, Ken says that investors can add stability to their portfolio by investing domestically and outside their home country.
