The Credit Suisse Global Investment Returns Yearbook is the authoritative guide to historical long-run returns. Published by the Credit Suisse Research Institute in collaboration with London Business School, it now covers all the main asset categories in 35 countries (including 3 new markets this year). Most of these markets, as well as the 90-country world index, have 122 years of data since 1900.
The winds of change are blowing in financial markets, making the Yearbook’s historical perspective especially relevant. This year’s volume provides timely new evidence on asset returns during inflation and interest rate hiking cycles. Currently, it is vitally important to review portfolio diversification, which is the topic of the Yearbook’s special focus chapter.

“You have to have a level of savings in your asset allocation that doesn’t make sense. You have to have a level of conservatism that seems like it’s a little bit too much. That’s the only time that you know that you are prepared for risks that you cannot envision.”— Morgan Housel

„“The greatest thing by far is to be a master of metaphor [a combiner of ideas]. It is the one thing that cannot be learnt from others; it is also a sign of genius, since a good metaphor implies an intuitive perception of the similarity in dissimilars.” _Aristotele
