I don't invest in international funds, because the same ones never seem to have a good record from year to year. Guessing which ones will do well is just a guess, so I stay away from international funds.That would be why you could put money in indexes or pick a few different foreign funds so you get an average. It's not so much about picking the funds that will do best, which even domestically is often a shot-in-the-dark, but about owning a different class of equities that will not move in time with your others, so that they can offset each other and reduce the volatility of your portfolio as a whole.
