South / Central America

Recommended Posts

I will pre-empt this by saying I am not looking for "investment advise" but more any suggestions on the mechanics of how to achieve a specific goal.

I am looking at retiring (if not moving) eventually to South / Central America and on that basis it seems sensible to have a section of my pension portfolio invested in Latin American stocks as a hedge.

I don't have a huge pot so need to manage my costs and risk (and limited access to international markets) and have been looking at things like BRLA.L and similar investment trusts (I should disclose that I already have a small position here).

Finally getting to the point..

A lot of these funds have performed pretty poorly and seem to be focussed on large single sectors/companies like O&G, Mining etc and are mostly biased towards Brazil.

The fact that the region has performed badly makes me think that now is as good a time to poke money that way while the valuations are low, but I'm ideally looking for something that is spread more evenly around the region and in smaller companies that are more representative of the local economies.

I think I'm probably asking the impossible.. do I just need to wait for a decent trust to arrive if/when it ever does?

Dont invest in the country that you intend to live in, hedge your bets why dont you invest in the UK stock market.

Not sure I follow? Hedge against the risk we decide to stay in the UK after all?

Or simply bet that the UK will out perform Latin markets over the long run?

Edit to add: I'm presently mid 30s so have at least a 30 year investment window.
