Impact of overseas investments [currency risk concern]

Post by keithl » Wed Oct 04, 2017 11:31 am

Hey guys, I'm new here. Great forum to pick up useful knowledge :D

So I'm wondering about my current plan. I have about half of my monthly investments going into US currency ETF (I reside in Asia), the other half locally.

Is that too much of a risk?

What's making me torn is the potential of the global market compared to my home market which is tiny, and lack of diversification.

I don't wish to be stuck in a case 20 years later where I see all my gains wiped out or drastically reduced by the exchange rate.

Any comments would be welcomed :beer
