Higher cost strategies outperform for Swiss Pensionskassen

first_imgSwiss Pensionskassen with higher costs yielded stronger returns on average than cheaper peers over a three-year period, according to research from Complementa.The Swiss consultancy found that, between 2013 and 2016, the average return of Pensionskassen with an average cost of over 0.75% was 20 basis points a year better than that of pension funds with costs below 0.25%.In its analysis, first reported by IPE in May, Complementa found “no link between size and costs”.“It comes down to the allocation mix,” Heinz Rothacher, CEO at Complementa Investment-Controlling, told IPE. “If pension funds hold real estate and alternative investments, the TER level is higher on average.” He added: “Some pension funds made false economies. A good allocation mix, and in that sense a clever strategy, pays off.”Rothacher said diversification “paid off” as adding real estate and alternatives to the mix helped increase performance.Complementa’s risk check-up on Pensionskassen found that the average exposure to alternatives was 9.1%, an all-time high. The group said it had also experienced increased interest from trustees for training sessions on alternative investment strategies.However, Rothacher emphasised that it still “makes sense to cut costs in the individual asset classes”.The Complementa research showed that many pension funds were already doing just that: while the quota of cost-intensive alternative asset classes increased, the average cost level dropped slightly for the first time since 2013.The findings contrasted with data published earlier this month by Dutch research firm The Pensions Rating Agency. It found that Dutch schemes with low costs and a focus on passive management outperformed on average in 2016.last_img read more

Emordi is not fazed by the challenge of pitting his wits against Imama Amapakabo’s Flying Antelopes at the ‘Cathedral of football’ and believes his charges are in fine fettle to positively assert themselves in the contest. “We are trying our best to bring the boys up to speed and that is why we have been playing tune-up matches.

The Solid Miners are guests of the Bauchi outfit in Sunday at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi.Dogo said Wikki Tourists have always been hard nuts for the side to crack irrespective of the match grounds.“I call the clash a northern derby with a difference as the rivalry between both sides has always been tough whether the match takes place in Bauchi or Lafia.“Last season Wikki Tourists beat us in Bauchi while we were winners in the reverse fixture at adopted home in Makurdi.“We are looking forward to another entertaining, explosive and wonderful match in Bauchi on Sunday.“Wikki Tourists are a continental side so we will give them their due respect but not to the point of being scared of them. We have reached the business end of the league where results count. We are believing positively to come out of the battle smiling at the end of the day.”“Everybody is ready and prepared to execute the match plan to the latter to achieve the desired result. The management has done pretty well for us to prepare for the season we can only assure them that we will not disappoint,” said the former Abubakar Bukola Saraki coach. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
