As many of you know, the developed Europe stock index (represented by the EFA etf in our example) has dramatically underperformed our S & P 500 index since 2010.
Anyone who has chosen to hold investments in these funds as part of a diversified portfolio can readily attest to this fact.
But 10 years of underperformance has peaked my attention. Maybe this divergence will last forever? I will take my grandfather’s advice: “Remember Tim, throughout history the pendulum always swings”.
And we will look to be ready when it does.
