Investing in international funds

Vidya Bala | Updated on February 27, 2011

Investing in international funds is no different from investing in a regular equityoriented fund. Such funds either invest your money directly in foreign stocks (say, a Unilever or Exxon Mobil) or use the feeder route to redirect your money into other foreign funds.

Those that invest through the feeder route are called fund-of-funds.

A good number of international funds also invest in sectors such as energy, commodities and real estate. There may be limited stocks representing these themes in India.

Close to Rs 4,700 crore of assets are today managed by international funds, invested directly in stocks or through the fund-of-fund route.
