Listed below are all the funds in the AIC’s global category. To be allocated to the global sector an investment company has to have a meaningful proportion of its assets invested outside the UK. Investing overseas allows funds to invest in a wider range of companies and industry sectors than might be available just by stocking to the UK. All things being equal this helps make the portfolios of these funds more diversified than an equivalent 100% UK fund. This helps to reduce risk to some extent but does introduce new political risk and currency risk.
