While the idea of investing outside of one's home country is not that new, most investors' portfolios still have a home bias. Why is that? Could it be that international stock selection is more difficult? There are solutions.

Join ETF.com and Van Eck as we explore the Morningstar equity research process and methodology for selecting international stocks. This 60-minute webinar will focus on understanding how to measure an economic moat, examples of different-sized moats, and the sources of the competitive advantages they provide. In addition, we will take a closer look at a few case studies to help investors better understand why moats matter and how they can help improve international stock selection.
