Next year won’t be so easy after bumper 2013

LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) – Investors are going to have to
work far harder in 2014 to replicate this year’s bumper gains by
turning over more trades or pushing out into riskier
investments.

Those who did nothing other than park money in major
developed equity indexes at the start of the year are now
sitting on handsome returns of more than 20 percent, thanks
largely to extraordinary monetary support from central banks.
