Building Global Portfolios: Overcoming Home Bias – Janus Henderson – 10.20.17


Now On Demand.

Home bias is one of the largest biases and biggest trends our Portfolio Construction Services Team sees in advisor portfolios. In fact, our proprietary database shows average overseas allocations at only half the size of the actual overseas markets.

Going global is often not straightforward and can be wrought with myths, misconceptions and blind spots. This webinar will discuss some of these in addition to the benefits of increased international equity exposure and solutions for overcoming home bias.
