Last December, we gathered our passports and courage and, with three children under the age of ten, boarded an 18-hour flight to South Africa. It was our first major international travel with all three kids.The trip turned out to be fabulous in every respect, but we confess to feeling a fair amount of trepidation in the days leading up to departure. Typhoid shots and malaria pills aside, were we really ready for this adventure?
Perhaps as an investor you've had similar feelings of trepidation when it comes to leaving the comfort zone of what you know. We hear this often when clients wrestle with the idea of international investing. "Oh, that seems so complicated," is a common reaction. Or "I don't want to take on that kind of risk."
