EABH Lunch Hour: Moritz Schularick on the Rate of Return on Everything

Event details

  • | Friday, November 4
  • 12:00 PM
  • AllianzGI, Bockenheimer Landstr 42-44, 60323 Frankfurt am Main

This talk will be the premiere presentation of Moritz Schularick’s (Professor at Bonn Graduate School of Economics)  recent study on the development of all asset returns during the 20th century in all industrial countries. In view of the current extremely low interest rates, his view on historical episodes with extraordinary low nominal and real interest rates promises interesting insights.

The underlying research: ‘The rate of return on everything, 1870-2015’ is based on a comparative study of returns on bonds, equities and housing for 17 countries. The results offer – for the first time ever – a comparative view on returns, volatilities, risk premia, etc. over a statistically significant period of time.

Based on Moritz’s  argument, Stefan Hofrichter (Head of Global Economics & Strategy Allianz Global Investors) will continue to give an outlook to long-term asset returns taking into account current evaluations and historical parallels.

Discussion with the audience is planned and all participants are kindly invited to join the discussants for a networking lunch kindly sponsored by AllianzGI.

This event is organized by the eabh in cooperation with Allianz Global Investors. You can register here.
