Risk and reward: the world’s most difficult markets

Investing abroad can bring lots of benefits to a trader, not least because it means diversity for the portfolio and a chance to break into markets that haven’t yet been fully tapped. However, there are also downsides: the regulatory environment in some places makes it next to impossible for an international trader used to the relatively nimble frameworks of Britain to break through, for example, while other markets may have tempting returns on offer only for them to face a wipeout risk through currency fluctuations.
