Return Simulations in the Private Pensions Industry in Peru

This document contains a series of simulation exercises aimed at modeling returns in the private pension funds industry in Peru over the next 50 years. The results support the argument that return losses registered in Pension Funds due to the global financial crisis are part of a set of temporary phenomenon. In this way, a long-term approach offers a higher growth prospective for returns than other savings alternatives. Also, we conclude that returns vary according to the risk profile of the fund chosen by the affiliates for their contributions, and that choosing the Type 3 Fund yields higher returns, albeit through more exposure to equities and thus greater volatility.
