Regarding volatility, I would have thought the FTSE100 and S&P500 were about the same (I just eyeballed a 10 year graph with both on, e.g. 10yr on bigcharts.com )

Regarding risk, I think the differing valuations make the US market riskier, e.g. the high US CAPE http://www.multpl.com/shiller-pe/ vs the lower UK one https://www.ukvalueinvestor.com/2016/06/ftse-100-valuation.html

Maybe top-slice your US & Japan for a bit of EM?
