A new year is around the corner and we all know how hard it is to stay committed to resolutions. Keeping a simple, manageable approach helps though. Investing offshore is no different. It’s easier to achieve your goal if you stay committed. And it’s easier to stay committed if you choose a multi-asset fund. It gives you the comfort and ease of having a fund manager making your portfolio decisions across countries and asset classes.
So, what should you consider when you invest offshore?
Investing offshore is a journey, not a single event
The future doesn’t play out exactly as the most recent past, so it’s best to ignore the market sentiment of the day and focus on the long-term, diversifying your risks across jurisdictions, geographies, sectors and companies. The more time you give your investment to grow, the more likely you are to experience the full benefit of staying the course.
It’s easier to remain committed if you invest in a multi-asset fund
Making consistently good investment decisions over time requires considerable experience and discipline. So it makes sense to leave it to the professionals who spend every day focused on identifying the best long-term opportunities available in global markets.
There will be good years and bad years, and no one knows the sequence
With a multi-asset fund, you can benefit from positive returns across asset classes over time while spreading the risk of possible underperformance in any one asset class. While you may not capture all of the market upside in any given year, this approach makes it easier for you to stay the course over the long term.
