In the eight months since May 2013, the share price of Skaffold’s top global stocks has risen, on average, 10%. 15 of the 27 stocks identified in May 2013 have recorded rising share prices averaging just over 25%. Only four stocks have returned share price falls in excess of 10%.
The most impressive share price gains were recorded by Hong Kong listed casino operator Galaxy Entertainment Group (up 93%), UK-listed commercial television network ITV plc (up 49%), US-listed Global Payments Inc (up 42%) and Canadian businesses Pason Systems (up 37%) and Canadian Western Bank (up 35%). Four of the top 10 performers are listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange.
Hong Kong also recorded the largest decline, with Skyworth Digital Holdings share price falling 22% since May 2013. UK-listed Old Mutual (down 16%) and Petrofac (down 16%), Canadian supermarket chain Metro Inc (down 15%) and China Overseas Land & Investment, listed on the Hong Kong Exchange (down 9%) posted the largest losses.

SMSFs not using Skaffold Global are missing the upside of global stocks because they do not invest offshore due to the perceived cumbersome and expensive process.
There has been a significant performance gap between the performance of the Australian market and the wider world in recent months. According to Rainmaker data, the ASX 300 accumulation index is up 24% in the 12 months to 30 August while the MSCI World Index is up 37%.
With so much growth coming from the SMSF sector, a number of online brokers and wealth management firms have moved to make access to overseas stocks easier, including Skaffold, which was set up by well-known professional stock-pickers Roger Montgomery, Russell Muldoon and Chris Batchelor, and marketer Vanessa Gilbert.

SMSFs investors are three times more likely to research overseas stocks than non-SMSF investors, according to research conducted by investment research platform Skaffold into its member base.
"We would expect SMSF interest in offshore markets to continue on an upward trend, as data out of major international economies show improvement. There's also likely to be slipstream effect with non-SMSF investors following suit," Batchelor continued.
