I have been looking into Global Stock funds as opposed to a combo of Foriegn and Domestic funds. I am debating whether it makes sense to combine several of my Foriegn/International and Domestics funds into a World Stock fund (form of consolidation?).
Some of the WS funds I have come across have not been around a "full-cycle", obviously posing a bit of an analysis issue for me.
Among the WS funds that interest me are: MGGPX, PRGSX, ARTRX; they not only have very good returns but also metrics, including the US/DS Capture Ratio, Alpha, Sortino, DSDEV, etc.
In general, what are your thoughts on WS vs FOR + DOM? funds. In other words, is the use of funds geared towards specificity (FOR + DOM) better/prefered vs WS where the manager(s) is/are responsible for the whole kit-and-caboodle?
Specifically, what are your thoughts regarding the funds I mentioned and what other WS funds would you recommend I investigate?
Thanks for any and all thoughts, opinions and suggestions!!
