Global capital markets to feel impact of global aging demographics


S&P Capital IQ, (part of McGraw Hill Financial), has published a new report studying how ‘Global Aging Demographics Will Place Sharply Higher Demands On The Global Capital Markets In Coming Decades’. 

Findings include the fact that retirees are projected to grow from 8 per cent of the worldwide population in 2014 to 18 per cent of the population by 2050. S&P Capital IQ estimates a more than 20-fold increase in projected per capita retirement income for India, a 15-fold increase for China, and well over 100 per cent for the US, UK, and Germany by 2050.
The firm writes that with senior populations across a wide span of selected nations set to increase an estimated 40 per cent to 205 per cent in coming decades, as a demographic investor class, retirees appear set to become a much larger representation of sovereign and global financial market participants. “Global retirement income needs can conceivably be met via responsible levels of personal savings, conservative financial market capitalization growth rate assumptions, and reasonable average rates of return from global stock and bond markets,” the firm concludes.
