Millennials Want A 10.2% Return On Investments, But With Little-To-No Risk

The world is surprisingly optimistic when it comes to the minimum annual income wanted from investments. Americans and Millennials set the bar the highest at 11.1 percent and 10.2 percent respectively Suzanne Woolley of Bloomberg reported. The average stock market yield globally is 3.8 percent.

Financial advisers expectations were also high. A global study conducted by asset manager Schroders found that advisers wanted a minimum 7.9 percent return for their clients, while U.S. advisers cited a 5 percent target for their clients.

Simultaneously investors are risk averse. "Investors want to get that 9.1 percent with little risk to principal, and they don't expect to hold their investments through market cycles," Bloomberg stated. 20 percent of millennials wanted a 15 percent return on their investments and two-fifths said they were "comfortable holding assets less than a year," Woolley mentioned.

Big returns and low risk seems to be the global trend in this stagnated economy.
