Importance of the Global Perspective

1. Absolute and relative sizes of U.S. and foreign markets for stocks and bonds

U.S. = about 52% of total value of securities

More opportunities globally

2. Rates of return available on non-U.S. securities often exceed U.S.  Securities

Higher returns on equities are justified by higher growth rates for the countries where they are issued

3. Diversification with foreign securities can reduce portfolio risk
