Global, or world, mutual funds invest in US securities as well as those of other countries. In that way, they differ from international funds, which invest only in non-US markets.
Although global funds may keep as much as 75% of their assets invested in the US, fund managers are able to take advantage of opportunities they see in various overseas markets.
