    We've had longest bull run in a very long time... when the bulls stop, it's better to have international stocks to offset.

    Source for the claim? This sounds spurious

      “To get the full diversification benefits, we recommend that you consider investing about 40% of your stock allocation in international stocks and about 30% of your bond allocation in international bonds.”

      Does not mean 40% of your portfolio. Unless your portfolio is 100% equities.

    Depends on your risk profile. There is no generic answer here.

      I am not looking for an answer. Just a general idea of what people are doing out there. Cheers!

    Makes sense to me if it’s mostly weighted for emerging markets. That’s still 60% of your stocks in a single country, remember. Emerging markets have fundamentals like PE ratios half of the US equivalent. I’m not so bullish on developed markets though. Future tech out of Europe (most of developed) looks bleak.

      International markets don’t come without risk, though. I could see political instability with China and the Hong Kong situation.
