Use global investments to lessen portfolio volatility

By Nationwide® | December 01, 2017


Investors tend to favor the familiarity of domestic investments against the perceived risks of investing in foreign markets. However, an analysis of historical risk and return data shows that adding international exposure to portfolios may help to reduce risk and enhance potential return opportunities.

In this white paper, Nationwide® examines the impact of home bias, how global diversification benefits investors, and the optimal allocation of international equities.
