2. Developed Market Funds

Developed market funds are an attractive option because it is generally seen that mature markets are more stable. Also, they do not have the problems associated with emerging markets like an economy or currency risk in the economy, political instability, etc. making them less risky. Some schemes that invest in developed markets are DWS Global Thematic Offshore Fund etc.

Multiple-Feeders

3. Country Specific Funds

As the name suggests, this type invests only in a specific country or part of the globe. But, country-specific funds defeat the entire purpose of diversifying the portfolio since it lays all eggs in one basket. However, when there are opportunities in specific countries due to various reasons, these funds become a good choice.

Reliance Japan Equity Fund, Kotak US Equities Fund and Mirae Asset China Advantage Fund are some country-specific schemes.

4. Commodity Based Funds

These funds invest in commodities like gold, precious metals, crude oil, wheat, etc. Commodities offer diversification and also act as an Inflation hedge, thus protecting the investors. Also, these funds could be multi-commodity or focused on a single commodity.

Best commodity based international mutual funds are DSP Black Rock World Gold Fund, ING OptiMix Global Commodities, Mirae Asset Global Commodity Stocks, Birla Sun Life Commodity Equities - Global Agri Fund, etc.

5. Theme Based Funds

Theme based funds or thematic funds invest in a particular theme. For example, if the theme is infrastructure, it would invest in infrastructure construction companies as well as companies related to the infrastructure business like cement, steel, etc.

They are often confused with sectoral funds which focus only on a specific industry. For example, pharmaceutical sectoral funds would only invest in pharma companies. Compared to sector funds, thematic funds are a broader concept. This offers more diversification and less risk since the investment is spread across various industries.

Some theme based funds are DSPBR World Energy Fund, L&T Global Real Assets Fund etc.

How to Pick an International Mutual Fund?

There are certain things to be kept in mind while choosing a suitable fund.

Steps-to-choose-a-fund

Why to Invest in International Mutual Funds?

1. Diversification

The main motive of Investing in International Mutual Funds is diversification. Diversification helps in optimising the returns and reducing the overall risks of a portfolio. Low or negative correlations between investments make sure that the returns are not dependent on only one sector or economy. Thus, balancing the portfolio and protecting the investor.

2. Ease in Investing

You can give a global edge to your portfolio by making a direct investment in foreign markets through equities, commodities, real estate, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) as well. Buying units of an international mutual fund are much easier and they also provide the expertise of the fund manager which is not available in the other investing avenues.

3. International Exposure

International mutual funds help in expanding the investor horizons beyond the domestic boundaries. Also, investing internationally helps set-off any losses that the investor may have incurred in the domestic market.

4. Currency Fluctuations

International Mutual Fund schemes determine the NAV (Net Asset Value) of the fund by using the prevailing exchange rate. The exchange rates fluctuate every day, or more so, every minute.

This means that for a scheme investing in US Dollars, the NAV of the scheme would be impacted as per the dollar-rupee movement. It is observed that the more the rupee depreciates, the higher are the gains. This makes international mutual funds even more attractive since the rupee is going downhill now.

5. Country Specific Exposures

If the investor wants to take complete advantage of another country’s growth, international mutual funds are the way to go. But the flip side of this would be that the portfolio is dependent solely on one economy. Hence, increasing the risk Factor.

Taxation of International Mutual Funds

Tax treatment of international mutual funds in India is similar to that of Debt fund. If the investor holds the investments short term i.e. less than 36 months, they will be included in his total Income and will be taxed as per the applicable slab rate.

If the investments are held for more than 36 months, the investor is then eligible for indexation benefits. Any gains arising from the schemes will be taxed @ 10% without indexation or 20% with indexation.
