UK investors expect 8.7% annual returns over the next five years

UK investors are arguably expecting unrealistically high returns on their investments over the next five years, new research has found.

In a survey carried out by Schroders, the fund manager, 1,000 UK investors were asked to state their return expectations for the next five years. Rather than adopting a pessimistic outlook, at a time when there’s plenty of uncertainty on the horizon, most notably concerns over how the Brexit negotiations will pan out, investors were bullish in saying they expect an average annual return of 8.7% over the next five years. .

Such optimism is magnified in the expectations of millennials, nearly half of whom expect a minimum return of 10% a year. Almost one quarter expect more than 15%.
