Single country and sector funds maybe subject to a higher degree of market risk than diversified funds because of concentration in a specific industry, sector or geographic location. The portfolio may invest in small, mid sized or emerging companies, which are susceptible to greater risk and tend to be more volatile than is customarily associated with investing in more established companies.
