Assets Under Management (“AUM”) at the world’s 300 largest pension funds increased in value by 8.0% to a total of $19.5 trillion in 2019, in contrast to a 0.4% decline just a year before, according to the latest top 300 pension funds research report from Willis Towers Watson’s Thinking Ahead Institute.
The research shows that the value of the top 20 pension funds’ AUM also rose by 8.1% in the same period, equating to 40.7% of the total AUM in the rankings, unchanged from the previous year. According to the research, the Compound Annual Growth Rate (“CAGR”) of the top 20 funds during the past five (5) years was 5.5%, compared with 4.9% for the top 300 funds during the same period.
The COVID-19 crisis and economic uncertainty make pension fund boards’ agendas more complex and stressed than at any previous time. One of their top priorities now is harnessing the power of data and technology. These two areas are critical tools in improving the people, processes, and information that will determine which funds prosper in the years ahead.
