Dividends4Life: Asia's Top Dividend-Paying Companies

Asia's Top Dividend-Paying Companies

Posted by D4L | Friday, May 20, 2011 | | 0 comments »

With concerns about the U.S. economy starting to resurface, many investors have begun to re-examine their portfolio asset allocations to determine if they are taking on too much risk. Some investors have begun to shift their portfolio toward securities that will protect them from a variety of possible scenarios, such as higher than expected inflation, a double-dip in housing or further deterioration in employment numbers. One way many are de-risking their exposure to the U.S. has been through international diversification.

Generally, when people invest in emerging markets such as the BRICS, Asia or South America, the first thing they look for is capital appreciation. It was not common a few years ago for investors to look globally to less-developed countries for dividends and income. However, as the U.S. economy has stagnated recently, many overseas economies have surged ahead, and having exposure to these countries would have added diversification benefits to your portfolio.
