I am sticking to my guns and I still reco Dodge & Cox Intl. *Some people on the forum dislike the "newness" of the fund but look at the long-term record of the flagship fund. *Similar approach and about as low as you can go on the expenses for actively managed. *I like the slow and steady approach & they will close to new investors before new money floods the fund. *
Other strategies the forum has mentioned in the past - basket of each Vanguard Intl index fund, i.e not the Total Intl. index and weighted differently.
Tweedy Global - offer hedged and unhedged but I think I recall someone mentioning they will closing to new investors. *Exp ratio a bit higher.
Damn I wish we all had access to DFA's index funds b/c that opens up a whole new avenue *
And I won't touch your area of expertise with foreign bond recos, esp. since I got mine from you *
