17.9.2009 : Status of pension funds in 2008

A report containing information from the annual financial statements of pension funds for the year 2008 is available at the Financial Supervisory Authority's (FME) webpage. There is also an excel file that contains statistical information from the report. The main results of the report are the following: The real rate of return is -21.78% above the consumer-price index, compared to 0.5% in 2007. Five-year average is 2.5% and ten-year average is 3%. These negative impacts on pension fund's earnings can be attributed to difficulties in domestic and foreign financial markets and especially the fall of the Icelandic commercial banks in October 2008.
