PREPPING: Institutional Investor CIOs Dampen Equity Expectations


Despite the recent stack of institutional investor surveys that demonstrate the current mood of chief investment officers as cautiously optimistic, a number of these asset owner executives are not singing the same tune to their investment committees. Released publicly in October 2014, the Pyramis Global Advisors Institutional Investor Survey 2014 posed a question to its survey recipients, “Will you successfully achieve your target return over the next five years?” According to the survey, 91% of respondents in 2014 said “yes”, versus 65% saying “yes” in 2012 – a bullish investor indication. However, with increased market volatility festering in U.S. equities, chief investment officers are becoming more cautious and educating investment boards of possible setbacks in return expectations.

These insightful views are not only held by large U.S. pension funds but by sovereign wealth funds in Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.
