Why invest internationally? (Video)

Here’s a statistic that may surprise you: In the past 30 years, the U.S. stock market has been the world’s best-performing market less than half of that time.1

So when asking, “Why invest internationally?”, the answer is pretty clear. Investing in international stocks is crucial if you’re looking to diversify your portfolio. And diversification is crucial because it can enhance overall returns while reducing overall risk.

In this short video, we explain how investing internationally can help you enhance your returns and reduce risk. This includes how one of the biggest benefits to investing around the world is that international stocks may experience strong performance at times when the U.S. market is not performing well.

International diversification is a core principle of Wipfli Financial Advisors’ investment program. Contact us to learn more about our investment philosophy and strategy.
