    Default How many ASX shares until you invest offshore?

    What amount of companies or what $ size of your portfolio did you get to until you started buying overseas shares to diversify a bit and benefit from other economies other than Australia?

    eg. Porfolio size got to 50k. You had invested in 3 ASX companies and then decided to buy 20k worth of shares in US or UK markets.

    Just saying that ASX is heavily weighted in mining and financials and companies in overseas markets have exposure to a lot of different industries.

    Aus has pretty much everything important barring Tech. If you're buying US equities just be wary of FX exposure.
    Although seeing AUD at historic highs, 'diversifying' into foreign currency stocks may be beneficial a few years down the track.
    I believe effort to be a finite resource. Something to be used only when there are no other options available.

    If I have more than 20m I would diversify oversea
    below that figure I'm happy to stack the lot here :-)

    You dont have to expose to mining or financial if you don't want to

    I have 1 miner and ccp and ccv as financial, none of the big 4 banks
