The Rundown: Home Country Bias
Play • 6 min
I've written about home country bias before, but I thought it would be great to revisit given the U.S. market's outperformance of international markets for yet another year, well at least up until today. Over allocating to your home country is a common behavioral bias investors suffer from and for U.S. investors, it's been a benefit over the last 10 years.  But will it be for the next 10? The answer is no one knows, but I still believe a GLOBALLY diversified portfolio is best for most investors and their financial plans. Be sure to listen to today's Rundown, which I've pushed to the podcast and check out the graphs below that I reference. Finally, this is not investment advice, so be sure to talk to your financial advisor to see where your home country bias lies and if you need to make any adjustments.   SPTM vs. SPDW vs. SPEM 2019 YTD Source: Y Charts   SPTM vs. SPDW vs. SPEM Last 10 years Source: Y Charts   Source: Visual Capitalist Visual Capitalist: The $74 Trillion Global Economy in One Chart Past Posts: Home Country Bias And Your Portfolio Home Country Bias Check-Up   Go ahead and subscribe to the RLS Wealth Management Rundown Flash Briefing.   Disclaimer: Nothing on this blog should be considered advice, or recommendations.
