Hi, I have just finished listening to an ASX podcast promoting international investment. It stated that Australia owns only 2% of the worlds business and the Australian market is very heavy in resources and banking. What I want to know is, how much % of my portfolio should I have in international funds? I currently have: cash 17.5% Aus fixed int 10.2% International fixed int 10.3% Aus Shares 48.2% International Shares 13.8% Is there some ratio of Australian/International funds that is the most efficent? A sort of "bet both ways" asset selection? The podcast mentioned India and China, as being the future. The speaker spoke of positioning oneself for the future. My veiw up to now,was that the emerging countries were a higher risk. Do I become heavier in this area? Are there any recommened books on this area? Thanks, Johny.
