How to create an “Anything but Europe” portfolio

Nov 22, 2011 15:41 UTC

(Reuters) – Is it time for investors to bail big time on what Donald Rumsfeld called “Old Europe?”

With the right combination of funds, it’s possible to build a portfolio that sidesteps most of Western Europe. In the process, you’ll gain valuable pieces of the emerging stock and bond markets and small companies in the U.S.

Given the steady stream of bad news, it doesn’t look like there will be major relief any time soon from the debt migraines from Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal. The contagion now has spread to push borrowing costs higher for France and Spain (see link.reuters.com/jas25s for the latest news).
