What types of opportunities are out there in terms of investing?
The potential for creating wealth is not just in the United States stock and bond market, but in markets around the world. The image below depicts the world according to the size of each country's stock market relative to the world's total market value.
Rising household incomes, natural resources, more opportunities for education. These are some of the factors that are driving global growth. And, if you’re only investing in US companies, they represent opportunities you may be missing. By investing solely in the US, you are excluding over 75% of the global economy and over half of the world’s stock market value.
So if this is how people SHOULD invest...Why would an investor choose to ignore almost half of the opportunities available to them?
