Inst. investors; investments excluding shares in investment funds 1998-2017


This table covers investments of institutional investors in Dutch investment fund shares. From 2009 on there is a spectacular growth as a consequence of the transformation by pension funds of their own investments into shares in investment funds that have been established by the pension funds themselves. This transformation leads to a double counting of these investments: with pension funds as investment fund shares and with investment funds as equity, debt securities and direct property. From 2013 on this type of transformation occurs also by insurance corporations. The double counting is avoided by excluding investments in Dutch investment fund shares.
