Cel - W artykule wskazano, że obecna międzynarodowa dywersyfikacja portfela w dobie globalizacji jest użytecznym narzędziem, które pozwala na budowanie portfela inwestycyjnego oferującego stosunkowo wysokie stopy zwrotu (które są zatwierdzone jako punkt odniesienia) z dopuszczalnym ryzykiem. (abstrakt oryginalny)

Findings - The presented investment strategy of stock selection from different countries will surely be a positive factor for the results of portfolio management.
