The AAII Denver Chapter presents...
"International Investing: Opportunities and Caveats"
The world economy has changed radically in the past decade-plus, with formerly “emerging” nations growing rapidly and some surpassing long-established GDP leaders. In this context, U.S. investors must understand the whole picture, and we should diversify our portfolios beyond our home borders. But information on non-U.S. economies and companies is not always easily acquired (or, sometimes, trusted). Should we buy individual stocks and bonds? Should we gain international exposure through American depositary receipts (ADRs)? Would mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs) be better choices? How can we avoid pitfalls such as the current turmoil in Europe? Or does that problem offer bargain opportunties? What about emerging versus developed regions? Should we invest in currencies? How much do currency effects impact returns on stocks and indexes? Get insight into these and related points at this AAII event. And why not bring a friend or family member to introduce them to AAII’s eductational benefits?
