The $80 Trillion World Economy in One Chart

In investing, people often exhibit “home-country bias” - favouring the stock market of their home country. However, as this image shows, there is wealth to be found everywhere so by diversifying your investments, you avoid the risk of putting all your eggs in one basket. A globally diversified portfolio tends to be better positioned to weather market changes over the long-term, meaning you should experience more stable returns over time.
