The BEST website is the Motley Fool, it explain things in an easy to understand tone. One of the options they suggest for someone to invest with a little per month is direct investment with a company.

Paul asks…

What is the best way to begin investing in international markets?

I am just beginning to learn about investing and would like to invest internationally… just not sure where a beginner like myself should start or how to do it for that matter… or what to invest in (stocks, bonds, mutual funds etc). Any advice?

financi4 answers:

I think the best way for a beginner would be through an Exchange Traded Fund. Mutual Funds require thorough research because you are trying to evaluate the abilities of individuals to actively manage your portfolio. Rather than spend that time (and money through higher expense ratios), go with an ETF that will charge a tiny fee and give you broad exposure to the international markets.

My recommendation would be to check out the iShares EAFE index fund (Ticker: EFA). It will provide you liquid, diversified exposure to Europe, Australia/New Zealand, and the Far East (Ex-Japan). If you have a bigger appetite for risk, you might also consider the emerging markets – look at Ticker VWO from Vanguard or EEM from iShares.
