As these markets turn, and the “hot” money flows back into some of these international investments, there will be significant interest in providing a service such as Global Gains again. I could be wrong, but I would not be surprised if you open a new global investing service down the road and I will be eager to join.

Michael,

I certainly hope you are right, because that would be a wonderful position to be in.

Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case so far and I do believe the relative performance of international markets has had something to do with that, but not everything. Better international market performance would likely help some of those investors get over the hump of investing in companies that operate in different currencies and markets, but international investing is by definition a subset in the US where home bias is very strong.

I will have the freedom to dedicate a small portion of the portfolio to some individual names that are only international in a limited way. Hopefully that will broaden the audience and people will see the value of having a large portion of a portfolio international stocks as I plan to outperform in both buckets.

Best,

Nathan
