    Dear Hemanth, the biggest risk in international fund is currency conversion rate. With out earning any actual return, due to currency fluctuation alone, your fund can show either positive or negative return. If you can digest this, please invest in International Eq. funds. From taxation point of view, International Eq. funds are treated as debt funds.

    Thanks
