Economic Downturn Fails to Impact Turkish Pension Fund Market

Delhi, India (PressExposure) April 17, 2009 -- According to our latest research report on the Turkish pension fund market titled “Turkey Pension Fund Market Forecast to 2013”, even in an environment of global financial crisis, when pension funds all around the world have shown a tendency to contract, the situation is completely different in Turkey because investors are making conservative choices and investing in treasury bonds and state bonds.

The number of people who participated in pension funds during 2008 reached nearly 1.74 Million, while the total value of the pension funds jumped to 6.4 Billion Turkish lira, an increase of 32% compared to a year earlier. The growth trend witnessed last year is expected to continue in the forecast period. The number of pension fund participants is projected to grow at a CAGR of 28.5% between 2009 and 2013.

Over 80% of the pension funds have been invested in public borrowing instruments or in fixed yield investment vehicles such as reverse repo. Meanwhile, the share of pension funds invested in equity stands at only about 11%. The prudent investment style has helped the funds to maintain their value and not bear big losses. We expect that investors will continue to follow the similar path in coming years.
