Susan Dziubinski: Hi, I'm Susan Dziubinski for Morningstar.com. Finding a good international stock fund is easier said than done. Ideally, you want a fund that provides exposure to foreign large-caps with both growth and value characteristics and some smaller companies and emerging-markets stocks thrown in for good measure. However, many of the best funds that do all of those things--including Oakmark International, Artisan International Value, and Dodge & Cox International Stock--are closed to new investors. Yet there are other funds that can fit the bill. Here are some of Morningstar's favorite funds in the foreign large-blend category that are accepting money from new investors.
