Efficiency at record level, the last quarter pushed investment return into the negative
The unstable performance of global equity markets in the final quarter of the year pushed Varma’s investment returns for the full year into negative territory. At year-end, the market value of Varma’s investments stood at EUR 44.0 (45.4) billion. Efficiency improved further to an all-time record high. Varma used 60% (67%) of the insurance contributions meant for operating expenses.
