The normal portfolio is composed of 40% equity funds, 40% interest-bearing funds and 20% alternative investments.
|Equity funds 40%||40%|
|Interest-bearing funds 40%||40%|
|Alternative investments 20% %||20%|
At 31 March 2021 the composition was 53.5% equity funds, 29.7% interest-bearing funds and 15.6% alternative investments, while liquid funds make up 1.2%. This composition deviates from that of the normal portfolio mainly because of the favourable trend of Mistra’s equity funds, and thus the rise in the proportion of the portfolio consisting of these funds.

‘The new decade started in a volatile way, but there is currently hope that capital will be available for large investments in a sustainable transition needed for economies around the world. Short-term, there are significant economic and social challenges and “life support” keeps the economic machines going in large parts of the world economy.
