The article presents the viewpoint of six investment specialists regarding the popularity and viability of international investments. The financial planners give opinions based on their local market. Areas represented include Brazil, New Zealand, India, Malaysia, Australia, and England.

Tax laws and currency restrictions may hold investors back. Conservative minded investors are likely to be more comfortable with local markets.
