Investment Portfolio Performance

The Fund’s investment portfolio, including the RSA and reserves, increased to approximately K7.68 billion, as at 31 December 2019, which represents a substantial increase from the prior year.

The increase in the portfolio was mainly due to investment income and was partially offset by net withdrawals from the Fund. The investment income is primarily attributable to dividend, rents, interest income, and variations in the value of international investments.
