There's a tendency for investors to stick to what they know so for UK investors, UK companies are familiar and comfortable. But our video explains why you may want to overcome your home bias.

As the investment saying goes, you should only invest in what you truly understand. And for UK investors, it’s easy to stick to UK companies.

In our video, Tom Stevenson of Fidelity International discusses with YourMoney.com’s Paloma Kubiak why it’s essential for UK investors to conquer their domestic bias, whether this tendency is still relevant in today’s technological and global world, the exciting opportunities overseas and why investing in the FTSE doesn’t actually mean investing in pure UK companies.
