Abstract

This note provides evidence that there were long long-run benefits for a UK investor from diversifying in the equity markets of the US during the pre-October 1987 crash period. For the post-crash period, these benefits are reduced. These results are based on two distinct cointegration tests, and national indices from Morgan Stanley Capital International, which have several advantages over standard indices.
