Chicago, Illinois (PressExposure) September 10, 2008 -- Thomas White International, Ltd, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, announced the launch of its newly designed website, (www.thomaswhite.com). The goal of the site is to provide investors with a source to expand their understanding of global investing, and the positive effects globalization is having on countries, industries and businesses around the world. Reports will chronicle observations from Thomas White research professionals in America and Asia who actively monitor business conditions and markets in fifty countries.
The firm's founder and CEO, Thomas S. White Jr. commented, "We believe that once U.S. investors understand globalization, they will see the advantages of international equities in their portfolios. It only makes common sense that investors search the globe for the most attractive opportunities."
The new site should be particularly helpful to long-term investors and the advisors who manage their investments. The objective is to provide the knowledge and resources prudent investors need to make sound decisions in this new global environment.
Investors will have ready access to fifty country reports, as well as monthly economic reviews of capital markets in Asia, Europe, the Americas, and the Middle East/Africa regions. Global Focus Special Reports will offer an analysis of critical and relevant issues that affect our increasingly globalized world today. On the lighter side, the site offers weekly "postcards", a collection of interesting vignettes from around the globe. The content is also available free on the site through email subscriptions.
Investors can also find information on Thomas White International's two no-load mutual funds. The Thomas White International Fund (TWWDX) primarily invests in equity securities of companies located in the world's developed countries outside the United States, while the Thomas White American Opportunities Fund (TWAOX) mainly invests in equity securities of mid-cap U.S. companies. The Funds are managed by Thomas White International with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Bangalore, India.
