Data from Credit Suisse shows that the Australian sharemarket has outperformed other bourses over the long-term, with real annual returns of 6.6 per cent since 1900 in US dollar terms. The ASX’s annualised return over this period was 6.8 per cent in local currency terms, behind the 7.1 per cent return from the South African bourse. Looking ahead, Credit Suisse says Generation Z can expect annualised equity returns of about three per cent, compared with annualised returns of 7.1 per cent since 1950 for Baby Boomers.
