Investing only in U.S. stocks? It might be hurting your portfolio
Investors are encouraged to diversify as there are lots of opportunities abroad.
Hear of the investing phenomenon of home-country bias? It’s pervasive across time and geography, and it can be very damaging to your investment portfolio if ignored.
It may make investors feel all warm and fuzzy inside, but it generally tricks us into accepting lower returns and higher volatility from domestically-tilted portfolios.

But it’s not!
And it’s hurting your portfolio.
In the following infographic, we look at several different reasons why you should avoid falling prey to the phenomenon of home-biased investing and what could happen if you take advantage of opportunities abroad.
