Wilmington Trust Releases 2013-2019 Capital Markets Forecast
Report identifies 'dollars, debts, and demographics' as key economic forces

WILMINGTON, Del., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wilmington Trust released its annual seven-year Capital Markets Forecast, projecting continued recovery in the U.S. with economic growth at 1.5-2 percent in 2013, and annualized inflation averaging 2 percent through 2019. The report's theme, "dollars, debts, and demographics," examines how central bank stimulus, global debt, and aging populations will reshape the global economy and financial markets.

The forecast, crafted by the Investment Strategy Team at Wilmington Trust Investment Advisors (WTIA), predicts modest returns on stocks over the seven-year span of the outlook. The team is more optimistic about emerging stock markets, value-oriented large-cap stocks in developed international markets, and non-core bonds, such as sovereign debt of emerging economies and speculative-grade corporate bonds.

"Investing is a long-term proposition," said Rex Macey, WTIA's chief investment officer. "While a myriad of competing economic and political forces will perpetuate a tepid recovery over the next few years, there are opportunities for the diligent investor."

DOLLARS, DEBTS, AND DEMOGRAPHICS
The Capital Markets Forecast includes concerns about the ability of world leaders to drain excess liquidity from the global financial system. While only a 2-percent annualized inflation rate is predicted for the U.S. over the seven-year outlook, the "tidal wave of stimulus" issued by central banks continues to boost financial asset valuations, leading to below-average expected returns.

Just as the world is awash in dollars, it is also steeped in debt. The total debt of the United States, including households, for-profit and not-for-profit entities, and all levels of governments, hit $53.1 trillion at the end of the third quarter of 2012, an amount equal to 3.9 years' worth of all goods and services produced domestically. In 1982, national debt amounted to just 49 weeks' worth of U.S. economic output.

The Investment Strategy Team also cites concern over the "graying" of key populations of the global economy. As U.S. Baby Boomers enter retirement and transition from accumulators of savings to consumers of savings. This demographic shift will likely generate headwinds for the markets. In many emerging markets the demographics are more favorable supporting investments in those markets.  On the bright side in the U.S., the Echo Boomers will be helping to support the housing market in a few years.

SIX U.S. ECONOMIC SCENARIOS
The forecast also examines six potential scenarios and their potential effect on economic growth:

  • Slow growth with normalization
  • Slow growth with persistent economic repression
  • Global policy success
  • Prolonged European / Chinese under-performance
  • U.S. policy failure
  • De-globalization

"In spite of continuing threats to the economy, many economic resources remain in surplus in the U.S. including manufacturing, housing, and labor," said Macey. "Additionally, we see a light at the end of the tunnel. By the end of our forecast horizon in 2019, the U.S. will be ten years removed from the end of the Great Recession, and economic growth and the financial markets should have normalized by that time."
