Traders and investors hoping for a quiet life after a rollercoaster 2015 might be in for a shock, according to the CEO of the U.K.'s largest insurance company.
Speaking about global volatility this year, Mark Wilson at Aviva predicted that concerns over Chinese growth would trouble international stock markets for another four years.
"I think we're going to get volatility until maybe 2019," he told CNBC Thursday, adding that sentiment will only cool down after that extended period.
"It used to be that when the U.S. sneezed, the rest of the world caught a cold, then the same thing happened with China. My view is that the market will get immunity to that."
Wilson said that it would be a period of "learning" for global investors as they deal with slowing growth in China, but he maintained that he was still a "bull" on the world's second largest economy.
