Global Investing Week
November 12-16: Why and how to look across the world for great investment ideas.
As the U.S. grapples with slow growth, stubbornly high unemployment, a heavy debt load, and political gridlock, some investors are looking overseas for a safe haven or to add diversification. But is the grass really greener on the other side of the ocean?
Morningstar.com checked in with our own analysts and strategists, as well as some of our favorite fund managers, to draw a global map for investors. We explored the growth drivers of the world's economies and the outlook for global investment returns (note: the two don't always correspond). We also offered some practical tips for allocating assets to overseas investments and some specific picks for international investors.
