Why Invest Internationally?
Did you know that Australia only makes up less than 2% of the world’s market capitalisation? And yet many Australian investors are still heavily overweight to the domestic market. Because of this home bias investors could be missing out on the diversification benefits and potential growth of international stocks. While the ASX 200 is dominated by Financials and Materials, overseas markets provide Australian investors with access to a broader range of sectors, including 2017’s top performing sector; technology. International investing therefore provides Australian’s with exposure to sectors, regions and opportunities that can’t otherwise be accessed in the domestic market.
By diversifying across multiple regions and sectors investors can reduce the overall risk in their portfolio. If one region or sector starts to underperform, having a diversified portfolio will help offer downside protection and reduce the impact of one area’s underperformance.
ETFs provide investors with an easy way to gain exposure to a specific region, sector or thematic. At ETF Securities we provide you with the ability to gain exposure to a broad range of international regions and sectors through a single, low-cost trade. All our ETFs are domiciled in Australia, physically backed and fully transparent, with the product holdings available on our website daily.
