Home-Country Bias Limits Opportunity: 39% keep their investments at home

U.S. Investors Exhibit Strong Home-Country Bias1

A majority of U.S. investors surveyed are exploring global investing. But 39% are restricting their investing to their home country.1 That means they're missing out on global opportunities.

Have You Searched the World Over?

The potential opportunities to be found in global investing were summed up by Sir John Templeton: "If you search worldwide, you will find more and better bargains than by studying only one nation."

Take stock of where you are invested. The best way forward will depend on your goals, time frame, and other details that make you a unique investor. Set up an appointment to discuss any changes to your portfolio with your financial advisor.
