General government net financial assets turned to decline in the second quarter of 2011

General government net financial assets, that is, the difference between financial assets and liabilities, fell by EUR 0.9 billion to EUR 116.3 billion in the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in net financial assets was primarily due to falling share prices.

At the end of the second quarter, general government net financial assets stood at EUR -25 billion and decreased in all by EUR 2.4 billion during the quarter. This was mainly caused by the fall in the market values of central government enterprise holdings. Local government's net financial assets totalled EUR 2.1 billion, having grown by EUR one billion from the previous quarter. Social security funds’ net financial assets stood at EUR 139.2 billion at the end of the second quarter, which is EUR 0.6 billion more than at the end of the first quarter. During the second quarter, social security funds increased their investments in short-term promissory notes by EUR one billion and in bonds by EUR 1.5 billion. Only EUR 0.1 billion were invested in quoted shares.
