Why Parag Parikh Flexi Cap Fund invests in foreign stocks

Nothing is permanent: Stockmarkets are cyclical. What goes up today may come down tomorrow. Hence, concentrating all our investments in one market is not prudent, especially in today's times when it is fairly easy to invest globally via mutual funds.

'Country Risk' can bite you: Most mutual fund schemes help you diversify across industries within India. However, you could still be affected if there are negative events within (such as war, drought, political turmoil etc.). Investing across countries helps to reduce this risk.

Why miss out on nearly 98%?
India's market-capitalisation is currently around 2.18% of the global market-cap. as at June 22, 2020* Hence, by ignoring the rest of the universe, we could be missing out on several opportunities.

Different markets dance to different tunes
Local factors affect every market, and the stocks listed therein. This leads to periods of huge divergence between markets. Being exposed to more than one market may help capture some of this.

Reducing portfolio volatility: Diversifying across countries also helps to reduce the volatility of the portfolio. Lower fluctuations in the Net Asset Value (NAV) mean greater peace of mind…

Local markets may lack variety: There are several world-class companies which do not have Indian subsidiaries who are listed (Eg. Coca Cola, Nike, Samsung). Also, there are innovative companies making certain products/services for which there are no Indian substitutes. When we invest abroad, our investors get a chance to benefit from the performance of such global leaders.

For instance, the US market offers wider options to invest in software product companies or pharmaceutical innovator companies compared to the Indian stockmarket.

Valuations may differ: Surprisingly, a domestic subsidiary's Parent company may be available at a more attractive valuation abroad.

A representative sample is provided here:

Company PE Ratio (Overseas) PE Ratio (NSE)
Nestle 25.74 88.68
Pfizer 15.17 50.81
Suzuki 10.60 52.86
Cummins 15.53 39.09
ABB 72.81 170.29

In such a case, investors could diversify simply by purchasing the Company abroad. Also, in many cases, the Parent earns royalty from its foreign subsidiaries, and by owning the parent one could benefit from this.

Globally diverse...yet tax-friendly
As PPFCF invests a minimum of 65% in Indian equities, it enjoys the same Capital Gains Tax benefits as any other Indian equity scheme. Hence diversification does not result in any tax disadvantage.
