Investment allocation by asset class
31 March 2021
We invest our accrued funds profitably and securely as a means of ensuring future pensions. The aim of our investment activities is to achieve the best possible return in order to ensure sustainable funding for pensions.
Our investment activities are professional, independent and responsible. We utilise a wide range of different revenue sources and diversify our investments internationally among different asset classes. Our investments comprise fixed-income investments, equity investments, real estate investments and other alternative investments.
Good investment returns strengthened Veritas’ solvency. The solvency ratio increased to 129.6 per cent during the first quarter of 2021. The solvency capital was 1.8 times the solvency limit.
The solvency capital serves as a risk buffer for the purposes of our investment activities and against insurance risk. It determines the pension provider’s capacity to bear risk and pursue higher returns on investment activities. High investment returns increase a pension provider’s solvency and, correspondingly, the solvency decreases during weaker investment years.
Good investment returns strengthened solvency
