Vanguard Dramatically Cuts Expected Rate of Return for the Stock Market over the Next Decade



**Summary:** Vanguard expects US Equities to return about 5% median annualized return over the next decade, largely thanks to slowing GDP growth. Americans are “going to need to save more and save for longer”

In case anyone needed a little bit more of a push to buy international equities, let this be it.


Someone answered:

And what is your reasoning to think international equities will outperform the US stock market over the next decade?

From where I sit, the US is looking substantially better then any other global market right now, but especially more so then Europe.

Someone answered:

Well, that's Venguard's opinion. They are far from always correct.

A prediction for an annualized return over the next 10 years is virtually impossible to make accurately IMHO.

AQR is transparent about their methodology, both in piece linked to and in other pieces they reference in the footnotes.
