An increasing number of investors are becoming aware of the benefits of international diversification. Generally, an internationally diversified portfolio of securities will be less volatile than a purely domestic portfolio. The reduction in volatility occurs because the returns on foreign securities are not perfectly correlated with domestic securities. As a result of the perceived benefits, U.S. based international mutual funds and U.K. international investment trusts are becoming more popular with investors.
