Global Investment Funds
At Picton Financial we offer access to a wider range of Global Investment Funds. A Global Investment Fund is a fund that invests in companies located anywhere in the world including the investor’s own country. A global fund seeks to identify the best investments from a global universe of securities.
A global fund provides investors with a diversified portfolio of global investments. Investing in international securities can increase an investor’s potential return, with some additional risks. A global fund can help to mitigate some of the risks and fears investors may have when considering international investments.
Around the globe, investment regions are usually described as developed markets, emerging markets and frontier markets. Each category includes countries with their own individual characteristics and risks. Developed markets represent companies that have mature economies and efficient infrastructures, specifically for financial market transactions. Emerging markets often provide the greatest opportunity for return, as they are some of the largest and fastest growing economies in the world. Frontier markets will offer the highest risk, as they are the least developed.
Investors can expand their investable universe globally to seek out greater returns but investing in global securities can also increase risks. Therefore, global funds provide a leading investment option because their diversified investments can mitigate risk and also allow for identification of top performing investments.
