time to ditch the home bias?
« on: October 26, 2016, 02:07:20 PM »
currently around 20% of my investment is in a UK all share tracker.

Considering the state of the UK, i am considering ditching this for an all world tracker, but im second guessing myself...

Any thoughts?

Your liabilities are in the UK are they not? Some matching is a good thing there.

The state of any country is a fluid thing. Don't chase returns.

Not an expert, just giving an opinion.

20% doesn't seem unreasonable. Where is the other 80%?
