International Investing: 401k Accelerator Tackles the Issue

Fidelity Independent Adviser’s 401 (k) Accelerator tackles the issue of overseas investment in its latest issue.

Williamstown, MA, July 25, 2008 --( In the latest issue of the 401(k) Accelerator, publisher Don Dion examines the possibilities available to investors who would like to invest their 401(k) overseas.

“Issuers are offering new funds every day with different international investment objectives,” Dion said. “While some of these new funds may not be right for your 401(k) portfolio, a 10%-15% exposure in appropriate funds will offer you the diversity you need over time to weather difficult U.S. markets,” Dion added.

Due to the rapid rise in value of stock markets overseas and the weakening of the U.S. dollar, more investors are looking to international funds to diversify their 401(k)s and increase long- term returns in their portfolios.

In his feature, “Investing Your 401 (k) Overseas” ( ), Dion reminds investors that “Many of the world’s largest and most successful companies today were barely heard of 40 years ago because they were in developing countries.” Dion believes that his investors can stay ahead of the curve “By diversifying your 401(k) now with up-and-coming international equities, you can gain exposure to brands that may compete head- to- head with Western consumer brands in years to come.”

“As more international funds debut on major exchanges, products such as my 401K Accelerator ( and Retirement Income Guide ( will provide investors with the tools that they need to discern which funds are appropriate for their savings,” Dion said. “The right international funds will help to diversify your portfolio, and even hedge against inflation,” Dion added.

Don Dion has been publishing the 401K Accelerator since January of 2007. Included in the 401(k) Accelerator is Dion’s popular Power Index. “Our Power Index is a tool designed to help subscribers determine which investments are suitable for them and their family,” Dion said.
