When building a portfolio the traditional approach was to select a diverse mix of global markets that would operate somewhat inversely to one another. The theory at work was that such a diverse mix would reduce the volatility or risk of portfolio.

The great financial crisis of 2007 - 2008 torpedoed this theory as all global assets declined together at the same time and in turn has changed the way we think. Perhaps the new global economy makes it impossible for a portfolio manager or private investor to seek out markets that do not correlate with the global trends.

Think again, because today many global markets are operating independent of one another and the broad inventory of global exchange traded funds provides opportunity for those who choose to participate.
