General government net financial assets rose slightly in the first quarter of 2010

General government net financial assets, that is, the difference between financial assets and liabilities, amounted to EUR 108.5 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2010, which is EUR 1.2 billion more than at the end of 2009.

Social security funds’ net financial assets grew in the January to March period by EUR 5.7 billion, but central government’s net financial assets fell by EUR 4.6 billion and local government’s net financial assets remained on level with the end of the year. Increased investments in shares by employment pension schemes had a particular effect on growth in net financial assets. The biggest increase was in mutual fund shares, into which new capital was invested to the amount of EUR 2.1 billion. Central government’s debt according to financial accounts grew during the first quarter by EUR 3.0 billion, local government’s by EUR 0.4 billion and social security funds’ debt by EUR 0.1 billion.
