The Global folio was developed for investors seeking long-term growth through investments primarily in established companies throughout the world.


The Global folio consists of the largest companies across the world including the U.S., in a variety of industries, in developed and, to a lesser extent, emerging markets.

This global approach may help investors take advantage of promising opportunities while limiting dependence on the performance of any one market.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We identified five major regions: North America, Latin America, Asia, Europe, and Africa. To determine how many stocks from each region to include, we analyzed the size of that region’s representation by market capitalization compared to the total market capitalization.
    For example: If North America’s total market value accounted for 50% of the entire region’s market value, then 50% of the stocks would be selected from North America.
  2. Within each region, the stocks were ranked according to their market capitalization. We then selected the number of stocks, based on highest market capitalization, for each region that corresponded to the weighting from the previous example.
  3. We then equally weighted all securities in the folio.

Number of Securities

There are generally 50 securities in this folio.

Update Frequency


If the characteristics of the folio have changed substantially, the securities included may change. Also, corporate actions, such as a merger, or other events may cause changes to the securities held at any time. Your returns may deviate significantly from the values displayed here, due to many factors, including how long after a folio has been updated that you place orders to update your holdings.
