Global equities investors have enjoyed a long run of success. The Morningstar Global Markets Index, a broad gauge of developed and emerging markets shares, has returned roughly 10% a year in pounds for the trailing 10 years to the end of April 2021.

But not all markets have participated. While US stocks have gained 14% a year over the decade, led by the likes of Amazon.com (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), and Tesla (TSLA), the Morningstar UK Index, which includes large, mid, and small cap stocks, has gained just 5.8% a year since May 2011.
