SEI global quick poll: US pension plans willing to trade higher returns for less volatility
SEI
3 Jun 2008 United States, Netherlands, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Canada Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
An SEI Global Quick Poll reveals that risk avoidance and volatility are the top priorities for plan sponsors in the wake of the credit crisis and the ongoing turbulence in the capital markets. In fact nearly two thirds (62%) of those polled said decreasing volatility in their investment portfolios while maintaining current returns was a higher priority than increasing returns while maintaining current volatility. That feeling was most prevalent in larger US plans (those with over $1 billion in assets), as 76% of those participants polled said their organisation would not be willing to take on more active risk in an effort to increase returns.
