Abstract

Owing to the rapid globalization of equity markets, equity returns from different international markets have become more correlated. This synchronization of markets makes diversification more challenging than ever. The recent popularity of wealth management services, especially in Asia, allows less wealthy individuals to gain access to advanced structured products and alternative investments. While sophisticated portfolio strategies are used to enhance performance, cultural behavior and home-bias must be considered in making international equity investments.
