In this video, Mr. Ritesh Jain (Trend watcher, Global Macro Investor, Former CIO, Blogger) speaks on the reasons why a person has to diversify his portfolio globally and why he must not solely rely upon domestic investment avenues for diversification when asked by Mr. Rajat Dhar (Director Investments -Indian Investors Federation).
In reply to this, Mr. Jain took us through the various reasons to go global investment like How fixed-income rates have gradually fallen from 11-12% to 4-5% nowadays. How fixed returns are fighting against inflation to generate any real return for an investor. He also took us the era of domestic currency depreciation in which average depreciation for a year is 3 %. Surprisingly, but the Indian currency have depreciated 50 % in last 15 years. In simple words, your cost of foreign education has doubled in last 15 years! Amazing, isn’t?
