The World Cup of Investing

, Written By Jim Parker

It’s been a banner year for New Zealand sport, with a world championship win in women’s netball, the narrowest of world cup losses in men’s cricket and an upcoming attempt by the All Blacks to win
an historic third consecutive rugby world cup.

Since the GFC the NZ market has performed like the All Blacks, in other words as one of the very best in the world.

Is it reasonable to expect the domination to continue (in share market performance that is)?

Jim Parker explores the facts in the attached article. View the PDF here.

This article is written by Jim Parker for ‘‘Outside the Flags’’. This series began as a weekly web column on Dimensional Fund Advisors’ website in 2006. The articles are designed to help fee-only advisers communicate with their clients about the principles of good investment—working with markets, understanding risk and return, broadly diversifying and focusing on elements within the investor’s control—including portfolio structure, fees, taxes, and discipline. Jim’s flags metaphor has been taken up and recognised by Australia’s corporate regulator in its own investor education program.
