5 Best International Equity Mutual Funds In India

International equity mutual funds enable Indians to invest in stocks of companies listed abroad. Through these funds managed by experts, you will be able to reap gains from stocks of some of the biggest companies in the world like Apple Inc, Google, and Facebook.

How does this work?
International mutual funds can either invest directly in foreign stocks or in indices like Nasdaq or S&P 500.
You can also invest in "feeder funds" which will invest your money in an existing identified mutual fund in the international market.
Further, there are "funds of funds" that invest in different units of mutual funds in the international market.
These could be additionally differentiated based on the markets and type of assets they invest in. For example, some mutual funds only invest in US markets while others invest in emerging markets.
These equity-based funds may also be investing a small percentage in debt instruments to balance risk.

Advantages of investing in international mutual funds

You can take your "diversification of investment portfolio" to another level with SIPs in international mutual funds.
Countries and geographies around the world face different challenges and experience growth at varying levels. To balance risks of investing only in Indian companies, you can take the opportunity to put money in an economy that is doing well at any given time.
Whenever the rupee depreciates or the US dollar strengthens, you stand to enhance your returns from investments in the foreign markets.
However, note that the profits you make from investments in international funds are taxed like debt funds in India.

5 best international equity mutual funds

The following mutual funds are being ranked based on their 5-year returns. Notably a few have performed better in the short-term, however, like with all equity-linked investments, it is wise to have a long investment horizon as markets are highly unpredictable.
Further, it is advisable to make a small allocation of your total portfolio in these funds to reduce risk. You can invest as little as Rs 100 per month through SIP or Rs 5,000 in lumpsum.
Consult a professional adviser to make the right investment decisions based on your income and financial goals.

Call of Duty: Mobile has confirmed that Zombies mode will be removed from the game as of March 25, on account of the game's creators finding it to be lacking in quality.  We had always mentioned it was limited but with no explicit end-date. We wanted to see the reception, see the feedback, and see how we can potentially shape the mode for the future. However, the mode just didn't reach the level of quality that we desire," developer Timi Studios wrote in a recent community update. Additionally, the studio will also not release Nacht Der Untoten, the second zombie's mode map it had been working on, globally. "We may bring the mode back, with Nacht Der Untoten, once we can make sure it is high enough quality," said Timi. The mode may be brought back at some point in the future with the Nacht Der Untoten map, but the team wants to ensure it is of "high enough quality" before doing so. Call of Duty: Mobile has been an enormous success
