GMO 7-Year Asset Class Forecasts - May 2012

GMO has just released its monthly 7-year Asset Class Forecasts and the expected annualized returns  for international and emerging markets have greatly increased:
  • US Large caps: 0.8% per year
  • US Small caps: -0.5% per year
  • US High Quality: 4.8% per year
  • International Large caps: 6.1% per year
  • International Small caps: 5.3% per year
  • Emerging Markets: 6.7% per year
Emerging markets and internal large caps could even produce pretty decent returns. On the other hands, bonds are still a disaster with expected returns between -2.1% to 0.8% per annum.

One way to act on this forecast is to buy iShares MSCI BRIC Index (BKF).
