Despite the fact that US equity markets make upless than half of world markets, only a small portion of ourinvestment dollars are allocated overseas. Even the mostsophisticated investors have been deterred by misconceptions aboutthe risks associated with owning foreign stocks or a lack ofinformation about foreign markets.
