I thought this article was an interesting compilation of some retail investors that use the morningstar site. I wonder how many people really are staying invested and adequately allocating their exposures across several types of assets.
I have put about 20% of my stock exposure overseas across emerging and other global markets. I don’t have any investments in bonds across the sea but since it is really hard to get a lot of information regarding the reliability and safety of those types of investments I’d rather not put money there. My current international exposure is through TGVAX, the Thornburg International mutual fund that is 5-star rated by Morningstar.
