Is it too late to invest overseas?

Everyone is climbing aboard the international investing bandwagon. Will the wheels fall off or is it the start of a long upward climb? John Addis examines your options.

International investing is now flavour of the month. A recent ASX research report indicated that 13% of 6.48m Australian investors intend to invest overseas this year, a 33% increase in just two years. Presumably not unconnected, in recent months we’ve seen Platinum launch an Asian-orientated listed investment company, Geoff Wilson launch the Future Generation Global Investment Company and Magellan launch a new exchange traded fund offering access to its Global Fund.
