MSCI Risk Monitor - Asset Owners - Q4 2013

This quarterly Risk Monitor for Asset Owners reports on the risk and return behavior of five representative pension plans. This edition reports on Q4 2013.  We present the performance and risk of assets during the past year and past quarter, adding in liabilities to examine funding status and surplus risk. We apply stress tests and show the effects of the scenarios on both the asset portfolios and funding status.  Finally, we present the evolution of risk and return of the asset classes that affect asset owners worldwide.
