Investors expect total annual returns of 10.7% over the next five years, according to a major new global study.
Regionally, returns expectations were highest in the Americas, at 12.4%. In Asia, investors expect 11.5% and the figure was lowest in Europe at 9.0%.
The returns include growth in their money, as well as any income paid out in the form of dividends and interest from a variety of investments including cash, bonds, property funds and equities.
The findings were part of the Schroders Global Investor Study (GIS) 2019, which measured the views of over 25,000 investors in 32 countries. The expectations are higher than in the 2018 study, when the investors’ forecast was for 9.9% a year.
