General government net financial assets EUR 131 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2007

General government total net financial assets continued to grow in the third quarter of 2007 by EUR 3.8 billion and reached a total of EUR 131 billion. Social security funds contributed EUR 2.1 billion and central government EUR 1.1 billion to the growth. The net financial assets, i.e. the difference between financial assets and liabilities, were influenced mostly by the decrease in central government debt and the growth in employment pension schemes' financial assets.

Central government redeemed a tranche of government bonds during the third quarter, which resulted in central government bond debt decreasing by EUR 5.5 billion to EUR 47.6 billion during the quarter. General government total debt at market prices stood at EUR 75.3 billion at the end of the quarter, which is EUR 4.5 billion less than at the end of the second quarter. Even though the growth rate of employment pension schemes' financial assets slowed down slightly in the third quarter, investments into mutual funds continued strongly. The flow of capital into funds amounted to EUR 3.5 billion during the period and the market value of employment pension schemes' investments in mutual funds was EUR 29 billion at the end of the period.
