World Money Analyst Defeats Home Bias and Gives You International Streams of Investment Returns
Home bias destroys portfolios over time.
Home bias results from focusing only on domestic markets. Many investors fall victim to home bias because home markets are the easiest to trade and to track.
Doing so narrows your universe of opportunity and results in smaller gains than if you had a fully internationalized element of your portfolio.
It also piles all your risk in one place.
For example, if you trade US markets exclusively and the Federal Reserve makes a major misstep causing the markets to drop quickly, your entire portfolio takes a severe hit.
The solution to home bias, as you’ll see below, is to look abroad for truly diverse opportunities that insulate you from domestic risk and give you a complementary stream of gain potential.
World Money Analyst from Mauldin Economics can help internationalize your portfolio (and your lifestyle) while giving you a chance at gains most US-based investors never see.
Led by Managing Editor Kevin Brekke, World Money Analyst only recommends global investment opportunities that meet TWO important criteria:
First, all recommended plays must trade on major, regulated global exchanges.
Second, all recommended plays must be able to be bought and sold via conventional, Internet-based, established brokerage accounts you can access from the US.
(A report currently available to World Money Analystreaders outlines possible brokerages if your current brokerage account is unsuitable.)
Recent gains you could’ve enjoyed, recommended by the global team of expert, local, on-the-ground investigators at World Money Analyst, include…
34.8% first-half-position gains in just one month from Russian airline Aeroflot
84% total return in 12 months when the Aeroflot position closed in January 2014
35.4% gains in 5 months from oil pipeline company Transneft
19.7% in 2 months on Indian IT giant Infosys
21.3% gains in just over a year from SingTel, a Singapore-based telecom company
The gains you see above are among the best performers of the past year. Had you participated in every play, you would’ve seen an average gain of 15.6%.
Though many of the gains delivered by World Money Analyst appeared in less than one year, World Money Analyst is NOT a short-term trading service.
Quick gains like you see above are an ancillary benefit of having an expert global team of on-the-ground analysts delivering a constant stream of opportunity to you.
In your monthly issues and action updates from World Money Analyst, you’ll also see long-term internationalization strategies like currency plays, foreign real estate ideas, and details on lifestyle internationalization like how to obtain a second passport.
Below, you can meet the experts who contribute to your World Money Analyst monthly issues:

Alexei Medved, Russia and the CIS. With an MBA from Wharton who pioneered East European investments in 1989 while working for a major global investment bank, Alexei Medved is a hands-on (and very successful) investor in Russian equities and bonds.
For the record, the Russian stock market beat all the other major stock markets in the world for the years 2000-2011 – and by a very wide margin: the US market was essentially flat over the period while Russia was up 671%! Maybe there's a more knowledgeable investor in these markets, but we don't know of one.

A specialist in South East Asian equities, Ankur Shah has worked as both a buy-side investment analyst for a global long/short equity hedge fund… as well as a sell-side analyst for an emerging markets investment bank.
