"[P]ension funds in the world's largest markets are shifting their portfolios from equities toward cash and alternative investments. In the United States, holdings of cash increased from 0 percent in 2004 to 2 percent of all pension plan assets at the end of last year. Holdings in 'other assets,' which comprises investments such as real estate, hedge funds, private equity, commodities, and even catastrophic bonds in the reinsurance area, nearly doubled from 16 percent to 29 percent over the same period. Meanwhile, U.S. pensions' equity holdings declined over the past decade from 60 percent of the total portfolio to just 44 percent."
