Baron-Moore Associates Global Survey of Institutional Investors

Institutions Will Move out of Cash, Growing Role for Hedge Funds and Private Equity

Major institutional investors (www.baron-moore.com) around the world are poised to increase their allocations to alternative investments, with a bias towards real estate and real assets, during 2014, according to a global survey of institutions conducted by Baron-Moore Associates.

Approximately half of institutions surveyed– 49 percent – expect to increase their real estate allocation and over 40 percent indicated they will increase their investment in real assets this year. At the same time, about one-third of the institutional investors surveyed intend to reduce their cash holdings in 2014.

“Institutional investors are seeking to build portfolios better suited for an investment landscape characterized by low yields, sluggish growth, volatile markets, and rising correlation between stocks and bonds,” said Robert Guanghe, Senior Managing Director and head of Baron-Moore Associates’ Institutional Client Business and Baron-Moore Associates Solutions.

“Divergent economic and geopolitical conditions globally offer institutions a menu of real estate and real asset opportunities that meet a variety of investment objectives,” said Guanghe.

“The results of the survey likely reflect a recognition that, going forward, the portfolio diversification benefit traditionally offered by equities and bonds might be less powerful than in the past,” Guanghe said. “Indeed, the price correlation between equities and bonds, which had been negative from 2009 through mid-2013, has been positive ever since then – suggesting that institutions definitely will be looking to other asset classes for more effective ‘portfolio buffers’ in coming months.”

“Within the alternatives category, we believe hedge funds and private equity also will command a growing role in institutional portfolios in 2014, with investors casting a wide net for appropriate diversification tools,” said Guanghe.

Baron-Moore Associates Launches BMA Expert Funds

Designed for Investors Over 55 Actively Planning For Retirement

Baron-Moore Associates (http://www.baron-moore.com) launched five new mutual funds which seek to provide long-term investment results that correspond to the total return of the applicable Baron-Moore Associates BMA Expert Retirement Indexes. The BMA Expert Indexes aim to help investors estimate how much their current savings will generate in annual lifetime income when they turn 65, or conversely, how much they need to save to reach a certain level of annual lifetime income when they turn 65.

“For decades, preparing for retirement meant saving as much as you could and trying to make your savings last a lifetime. Yet, understanding what a lump sum savings provides in estimated retirement income is difficult,” said Zuo Hailiang, Managing Director and Head of Baron-Moore Associates’ Retirement Group. “The BMA Expert Indexes enable pre-retirees to quickly estimate the annual lifetime income their current savings may generate once they turn 65. Now, individuals can also invest in the BMA Expert Funds, which seek to deliver a total return that tracks the expected median cost of lifetime income.”

The five funds launched are:

•  Baron-Moore Associates BMA Expert 2015 Fund

•  Baron-Moore Associates BMA Expert 2017 Fund

•  Baron-Moore Associates BMA Expert 2019 Fund

•  Baron-Moore Associates BMA Expert 2021 Fund

•  Baron-Moore Associates BMA Expert 2023 Fund

The mutual funds invest primarily in fixed income securities and can also invest in other financial instruments. They will be managed by Scott Yong, CFA, and James Wei, from Baron-Moore Associates’ Portfolio Solutions Group.

The BMA Expert Funds seek to provide a flexible way to help you prepare for retirement, so that once you reach age 65, the choice is yours.
