Afores Back in the Green Zone in July

After a two-month low at the end of last July, the Retirement Savings System in Mexico (SAR) rose, registering 1.9 trillion pesos (approximately USD $154 billion) under management, according to figures released by the National Savings System for Retirement Commission (Consar).

These resources, derived from over 49 million individual employee accounts, increased by over 33 billion pesos (approximately USD $2.7 billion), representing a rise of 1.76% on the balance as at the end of June 2013, and generated historical returns for the system of 12.74% nominal annual average and 6.27% in real terms during the SAR’s 16 years of operation, a slight increase on the 6.22% previously recorded.

The performance over the past 12 months has been lowered to 2.94%, mainly affected by the past two months, while the performance over five years is 10.25%, a slight recovery compared to  10.20% of the previous month. The system’s average net return over 51 months is equivalent to 10.8%, a figure which remains unchanged from last month, although with the Consar’s new reporting system, (which adds a month every month to update the System’s Net Yield) these figures can’t be really compared.
