These data derive from general government financial accounts compiled by Statistics Finland.

In the third quarter of 2014, the difference between assets and liabilities in central government grew from EUR -51.3 billion to EUR -54.0 billion. Net financial assets contracted mainly as a result of decreasing deposit assets.

The financial assets of employment pension funds and other social security funds stood at EUR 170.4 billion at the end of the third quarter. During the quarter, social security funds invested in net amounts most in mutual fund shares just as in the previous quarters of the year. Correspondingly, assets were moved particularly from short-term debt securities.

During the reference period, the difference between assets and liabilities in local government grew by EUR 0.5 billion. At the end of the quarter, the net financial assets of local government stood at EUR -1.1 billion.
