Hi,

I'm trying to build a portfolio built upon the model portfolio MF Global Gains suggests in their "build the perfect global portfolio" report.

My problem is that I can't find a way or tool to exactly find out for each stock which countries they do business in percentage-wise.

Morningstar's X-Ray service only covers the categories North America, UK/Western Europe, Japan, Latin America, EMEA and Asia minus Japan. I need to be able to differentiate between North America and the US, Developed Europe and Emerging Europe, Developed Asia and Emerging Asia. I could do the tracking myself, if I could find a tool that tells me the exact geographical exposure per stock, but I can't find this information anywhere. My broker also doesn't give this info.

I was hoping that the Global Gains team could help here, because I suppose when they recommend a certain approach, they'll be able to explain how to go about doing it?

Best wishes,

Chris
