General government net financial assets EUR 115 billion at the end of 2006

Correction to the statistical release on general government net financial assets dated 5 April 2007. The last sentence of the first paragraph has been corrected.*

General government total net financial assets continued to grow during the last quarter of 2006. At the end of the year they stood at EUR 115 billion. Financial assets growth from the third quarter was EUR 9.7 billion more than that of debts. Social security funds contributed EUR 6.7 billion and central government EUR 3.2 billion to the growth in net financial assets. The net financial assets of local government, that is municipalities and joint municipal corporations, decreased somewhat.*

Employment pension schemes invested in their securities portfolios during the last quarter of 2006. The biggest increase was in mutual fund shares, into which new capital was invested to the amount of EUR 1.4 billion. Central government sold EUR 1.2 billion worth of its assets during the last quarter, but following the general rise in the stock markets, the value of central government stock assets grew by EUR 2.8 billion from the previous quarter.
