Willis Towers Watson’s annual publication that presents an array of historical data for key UK economic and investment indices.

Welcome to the 2019 edition of ‘Long-term statistics’, Willis Towers Watson’s annual publication that presents an array of historical data for key UK economic and investment indices. It gives details of the long-term development of bank rates, shares, rates of inflation, retail prices, index of real earnings, deposits, returns, dividends and pensions.

The article in this year’s edition, “Looking ahead: Five-year Capital Market Outlook: Surviving and thriving in a late-cycle environment” discusses the market outlook and portfolio strategy for the next five years. The article begins with a review of investment performance in 2018. It then moves on to discuss the forward-looking global economic and capital market outlook. Finally, it discusses the implications for portfolio strategy and challenges for pension plan management. Not only are investors seeking to maximize their return per unit of risk spent, they must also manage the impact of the plan on the sponsor and increase extra-financial impacts.

The article used in this edition of the Long-term statistics is an excerpt from Willis Towers Watson’s Five-year capital market outlook first published earlier in 2019.
