Why you should look at Developed Markets beyond the US

The appetite for international investing has surged in India over the last few years. With India representing ~3% of the world s GDP and global market capitalization, the average investor is now exploring opportunities outside India. US-focused funds have seen strong traction as US equity markets outperformed over the last decade led by tech giants. Other Developed Markets, which represent ~28% of the global market cap, remain largely unexplored.


What are Developed Markets?

Economically advanced countries with a high standard of living and mature capital markets are collectively called Developed Markets. They have access to a large pool of highly skilled human capital and significant economic capital. These markets also have robust regulatory frameworks and provide financial and political stability, allowing businesses to flourish. By way of broad-based index that measures performance of developed markets, MSCI coined the term ‘EAFE’ that stands for Europe, Australasia, and Far East and covers 21 Developed Markets, excluding the US and Canada.

With a low correlation of just 42% with Nifty 500 and 57% with S&P 500, ‘EAFE’ offers Indian investors the opportunity to diversify across geographies and reduce country-specific risk in their portfolios. The weight of tech stocks in the US and Emerging Market indices have steadily increased from ~15-20% in the early 2000s to ~35-40% today. However, EAFE s exposure to tech has remained relatively stable at ~10%, offering investors a unique sector-level diversification that may help reduce volatility in the long run.

Most of these companies have operations around the world, deriving significant revenue from outside their home country. Therefore, their growth and profitability are not affected by how well their home country s economy performs.
