The International Equity Commitment refutes that rising correlation and costs, increasing exchange rate volatility, and underperformance of non-U.S. markets make investing in international equity undesirable, or, at best, irrelevant. The author uses a detailed analysis of the data to show not only that historical evidence supports a strategic allocation to international equity, but that the typical U.S. pension plan is underexposed.
