I have a friend who has a relatively small nestegg in a "tax-deferred" acount. She has very little international exposure; about 8%, mostly in Europe. I think she would benefit from some international and/or EM exposure.
She can only anly afford to invest in one more MF, so we are looking for something that has some diversification. Such as a international fund that has the flexibilty to invest in EM or an EM fund with a broad mandate.
I know of a few, such as MACSX (Mathews Asia G&I), SFGIX (Seafarer G&I) or TGVAX/TGVIX (Thornburg Int. Value), etc., but I know there are others out in the MF universe that should fit-the-bill.
She is not inclined to deal with a lot of volatility, so something on the moderate-to-conservative side is strongly preferred.
Any and all thoughts, suggestions and opinions are welcome!! Thank you!!
