It’s a great time to be an investor, especially one looking for dividends and income. That’s because accessing stocks, bonds and other assets outside of your home country has never been easier.

As access to new markets has been democratized and opened, everyone – large portfolio or small – can tap into faraway places such as Malaysia or Russia in search of opportunities. A single ETF can provide you access to an entire country, and there are hundreds of American Deposit Receipts (ADRs) now trading on the major stock exchanges.

The problem is that international investing opens up portfolios to a whole host of issues. One of the biggest happens to be the effects of foreign currency on returns.

And while in recent years, there have been numerous products designed to mitigate the effects of currency on a portfolio, they don’t always work. Perhaps the key to going international and taking advantage of the opportunities is to use the “Hedge of Least Regret.”

On Dividend.com’s Foreign Stocks page, we list all stocks that have ADRs and you can download the entire list in a spreadsheet, to your convenience.
