The International folio was developed for investors seeking long-term growth potential by investing primarily in well-established foreign companies.


The International folio is composed of the largest established, non-U.S. companies.

This folio diversifies broadly among developed and some emerging countries. By investing in the broad international marketplace, the International folio can help reduce volatility relative to other folios that concentrate on a particular region or country.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We identified four major regions, excluding 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 Asia’s total market value accounted for 50% of the entire regions’ total market value, then 50% of the stocks would be chosen from Asia.
  2. Within each region, the stocks were ranked according to their total 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 equally weighted all securities in the folio.

Number of Securities

There are generally 50 securities in the 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.
