MCN Posted July 24, 2014 Share Posted July 24, 2014 There are a few threads on here discussing investing in foreign markets (Japan, Russia etc) and the lack of information available in English, particularly with small caps. This is a problem I often bump up against. Google translate only goes so far... I'm curious to know how the large/institutional investors and hedge funds deal with this issue. Do they pay to have everything translated, which, if you consider that an annual report may have over 100 pages, can become pretty expensive if they want to research all filings and reports going back several years for every company they want to check out. Does Bloomberg/ Capital IQ provide a translated version of all filings? They employ local/ native speaker analysts for each market they cover?
