Emerging market currencies like INR have an inherent bias to depreciate against global currencies owing to inflation differentials between economies. This keeps reducing the purchasing power of INR. Also, it would be useful to have a safe nest, as it shields you from any negative impact on your assets and investments in your home country.
Taking a global approach whilst planning for investments would help you address the above. However, investment landscape outside India is quite vast and complex; and you might need hand-holding in selection of markets, routes to markets, tax treatment, expenses, selection of managers, liquidity, etc.
