Investors, especially millennials, have unrealistic expectations about annual returns: study

The average stock market yield globally is only 3.8%, but Americans expect 11% annually

Incredibly optimistic. That’s the attitude of investors around the world toward the minimum annual income they want from their investments.

The average expectation in a recent survey: 9.1%. Americans and millennials set the bar highest, at 11.1% and 10.2%, respectively.

The average stock market yield globally: 3.8%. And benchmark interest rates in major developed markets are at 0.5% or lower — or negative.

The expectations of financial advisers also appear high, according to the new global investor study by asset manager Schroders. The study, which surveyed 20,000 investors across 28 countries, found that advisers around the globe wanted to generate a minimum of 7.9% a year for clients — lower than what the investors wanted but still high given the low interest rates. U.S advisers cited 5% as their target for annual investment income.

I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years.  I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs.  The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings.  This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
