Breaking Down Global Barriers: Benefits and Challenges of Investing in the Broadest Opportunity Set
Summary: We believe unconstrained global equity portfolios offer many advantages over the traditional regional approach, most importantly higher levels of alpha, as the broad opportunity set enables one to maximize the potential of stock selection. Therefore, carving out space for a global equity allocation and removing benchmark-imposed constraints on portfolio managers may allow them to enhance returns.
