Abstract

En un sistema de capitalización individual uno de los principales riesgos que se enfrentan se refiere al de inversión de los fondos. En este contexto, se analiza el sustento de optar por estrategias de inversión de ciclo de vida como mecanismo mitigador del riesgo de las inversiones. Sobre esta base se analiza la importancia de la opción por omisión a la luz del comportamiento económico de los afiliados, caracterizado por un bajo conocimiento financiero, inercia y miopía en la toma de decisiones. La evaluación de estas estrategias se discute utilizando una metodología que reconoce como medida de riesgo adecuada aquella que toma en cuenta los riesgos relevantes del afiliado y el horizonte de inversión de los fondos, es decir, considera una medida de riesgo de pensión de largo plazo..
