International Financial Services, London (IFSL)
15 Jan 2007 WORLDWIDE Investment - Performance, Investment - Management, Investment - General, Administration
Worldwide, pension fund assets under management rose by 9% in 2005 to reach a new high of $18.6 trillion. The new edition of IFSL's Pension Reform report notes that assets were concentrated in a few developed economies, particularly the US, Japan and the UK. Assets managed by UK pension funds on behalf of domestic clients total $1,541bn. The real return of UK pension funds was estimated at 7% in 2006. This built on strong real returns between 2003 and 2005 of 14%, 8% and 17%. Sterling's strength against the dollar and the yen in 2006 held back returns from investments in the US and Japan. Despite the earlier steep fall in equity markets between 2000 and 2002, UK pension fund real returns averaging 5.1% a year over the past decade have been above the 4.5% annual average recorded since 1963.

UK clientsí pension assets and insurance funds fell by 24% and 11% respectively during this period. Fund managersí margins have also declined with the average profit margin falling to 23% in 2001 from over 30% in 1999.
