Modest decrease for National Insurance Scheme Fund

At the end of the second quarter 2002 the National Insurance Scheme Fund's total capital amounted to NOK 133 billion. This is close to the Fund's value at the end of 2001.

At the end of second quarter 2002, "Loans to central government" represented 58.9 per cent of the National Insurance Scheme Fund's total capital. The second largest were "Bonds", with a share of 19.4 per cent of the fund's total capital. "Shares and other equities" amounted to 15 per cent.

Slight decline

Balance sheet figures from the National Insurance Scheme Fund showed a modest decrease in the Fund's total capital. In comparison the Oslo Børs all-share index showed a decrease of 11.6 per cent in the same period. The modest decline in the Fund's total capital can be explained by the significant investments in low-risk securities.
