uncertainty in Europe spooking investors away from any asset perceived as
risky, many Americans have become wary of overseas equities. While the fear
is understandable, it may be keeping us away from some of the world's most
promising economies. I believe economic fundamentals are still the ultimate
driver of investment performance, but it's easy to come to the opposite
conclusion given the extreme global asset correlation we are now seeing. And
economic fundamentals vary greatly in different corners of the world.
overseas companies can manage both the turbulent economic waters and the
increasing anxieties of investors will be among the likely themes at Euro
Pacific Capital's Global Investment Conference, which will occur on
Thursday May 31 at New York's Sofitel Hotel. The event will be bring together
more than 90 executives from 56 leading international transportation, energy
and mining companies who will make their cases directly to retail and
institutional investors. In my early morning keynote to all conference
attendees I will attempt to remind the attending executives that the
macroeconomic tides are in their favor. Over the last generation, the vast
majority of the world's economic growth has occurred beyond America's
borders. I believe the emerging markets will continue to emerge and those who
operate successfully there will have a leg up on the competitions.
The event is
