In the Global Pension Assets Study:

22 largest pension markets: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the US.

7 largest pension markets (91.7% of total assets): Australia, Canada, Japan, Netherlands, Switzerland, UK and US.

 

Jayne Bok, Head of Investments for Asia at Willis Towers Watson: 

“Most Hong Kong retirement schemes were riding the strong rally in global equities last year, especially in Hong Kong equities with a 40% return that were the main contributors to asset growth. On average, Hong Kong retirement schemes are holding around 70% in equities, of which 30-35% are in Hong Kong.

Many Asian pension investors heavily rely on public equities but with a strong home bias to generate returns within the equities asset class. While the short- term figures are driven by unusually high market returns, now it is time to assess the health or resilience of equity portfolios. Moving towards a more holistic, diversified equity portfolio provides a wider opportunity set and also helps mitigate downside risks, for example, reducing home bias, or seeking other sources of return to increase diversity.”
