Investing in international equities is gradually becoming a subject of interest among Indian investors.
Traditionally, Indian investors have had a strong home bias and have often ignored overseas markets. But, the strong performance of US equity markets -- in particular -- has generated interest among Indian investors.
Domestic mutual funds are launching a number of schemes offering exposure to international equity markets, whether it is through actively-managed equity funds or through passively-managed mutual fund schemes.
But should investing in international markets be only restricted to taking advantage of short-term gains, or is there a solid case for investing in global markets such as US over the longer term?
And if there is a case, how can allocating to global equities help your investment returns, and reduce the volatility that is usually seen in equity investments? Are there any hard data points that investors can look at and draw comfort from?
In this podcast, Moneycontrol’s Jash Kriplani speaks with Tim Edwards, who is the managing director of index investment strategy at S&P Dow Jones Indices.
