"Demographics and Retirement Savings:  How they are Changing Household Demand for Bonds and the Implications for Bond Markets"

US households have accumulated $25 trillion in retirement assets with nearly 60 percent held in defined contribution plans and Individual Retirement Accounts. As aging Baby Boomers manage these assets  to and in retirement their demand for  bonds and income producing assets will grow and has been a major force behind the $2 trillion investors have placed in bond mutual funds and ETFs in the past decade with implications for the bond markets.
