Pension Funds Suffer Worst Year Since 2009

12 August 2022 @ 6:25 pm

Pension Funds Suffer Worst Year Since 2009 It sure is looking like the public pension ponzi is going to be even harder to sustain than over the last few years... That's because data released by Wilshire Trust Universe Comparison Service this week showed that public pension funds fell a median 7.9% for the year ended June 30. It marks their "worst annual performance since 2009," according to reporting by the Wall Street Journal.  Much of the drawdown came as the result of a market-wide realignment of risk tolerance that took place in Spring, as a result of higher inflation. The selloff in both stocks and bonds contribu

A Tale Of Two Recessions: One Excellent, One Tumultuous Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog, Events may show that there are no winners, only survivors and those who failed to adapt. Some recessions are brief, necessary cleansings in which extremes of leverage and speculation are unwound via painful defaults, reductions of risk and bear markets. Some are reactions to exogenous shocks such as war or pandemic. The uncertainty triggers a mass reduction of risk which recedes once the worst is known and priced in. Far less frequently, structural recessions are lengt
