They diversify my income stream away from the UK
They diversify my total return potential away from the UK
They are cost effective
I won’t hold global equity income funds

How a manager matches up against his peers gives you some idea of how talented he is. Very few managers perform equally well in rising and falling markets, so knowing which type of market a manager is capable of performing well within is also important.
