December 2022: We reduced equity positions in the energy and banking sectors

Kristo Oidermaa and Romet Enok, Fund Managers

In December, world stock markets mostly fell. Measured in euros, the MSCI World index fell by 7.6%, the US S&P 500 index fell by 9.4%, and the Nasdaq Composite index, which tracks the US technology sector, fell as much as 12.1%. The Japanese Nikkei index fell 4.4%, the European Euro Stoxx 50 index 4.3% and the MSCI Emerging Markets index 5.3%, measured in euros. The Baltic stock markets stood out last month: the Tallinn, Riga, and Vilnius stock markets rose by 0.4%, 3.4% and 0.1%, respectively.

Our investments in listed stocks depreciated at the end of the year, driven by profit-taking in positions related to the energy sector. Stock investments related to precious metals escaped the general decline of the markets.

At the beginning of the month, we reduced the fund’s equity positions in the US energy sector and European banks, which had offered good returns in the short term. With these sales, we increased the buffer that can be used for new investments in the near future.

European bond markets remained clearly in the red in December, showing once again the value of financing Estonian companies, both in developing the local economy and in achieving a higher return on pension assets.

The year 2022 was particularly difficult for the public bond markets: for example, the European market offered an average return of –17%, and Estonian government bonds fell as much as 21%. Fearing risks, we have avoided public bonds in recent years, but the new year may start offering new opportunities in this area.

November 2022: Stock markets continue to recover

Kristo Oidermaa and Romet Enok, Fund Managers

In November, the world’s stock markets continued to rise, and the euro strengthened significantly. Measured in euros, the MSCI World index rose by 2.7% and the US S&P 500 index by 1%, but the Nasdaq Composite index, which tracks the US technology sector, remained almost at the same level as in October, measured in euros. Japan’s Nikkei index rose by 3.6% in euros in November.

We experienced strong growth in European stock exchanges in November, when the Euro Stoxx 50 index rose by 9.7%. The same trend persisted in emerging markets: the MSCI Emerging Markets index rose by 9.9% measured in euros. While trends in the Baltic stock markets are often mixed, this month the Tallinn, Riga, and Vilnius markets moved in the same direction and rose by 5.3%, 5% and 4.7% respectively.

The local private equity company BaltCap announced that the BaltCap Latvia Venture Capital Fund, which they manage, was selling the digital medical services provider Blue Bridge Technologies. The company was founded in 2007 and BaltCap invested in it six years later. Blue Bridge Technologies was sold in its entirety to the software investor Everfield.

November was positive for the fund’s stock investments. The value of copper-related stocks rose the most, as they went up 20% as a response to the expected change in China’s Covid-19 policy. Among other investments, the share prices of gold mining companies increased to a greater extent. We saw a decline in energy stocks, where we also locked in gains from this year’s rise during the month.

The fund’s key positions on the stock markets remain primarily in investments related to mineral resources. In November, we reduced our funds’ equity investments in US energy companies to create liquidity for new purchases. We look forward to putting money back into better priced stocks during a more nervous market phase.

October 2022: Stock markets recovered from the decline

Kristo Oidermaa and Romet Enok, Fund Managers

In October, world markets recovered. The MSCI World Index, the US S&P 500, the Japanese Nikkei Index, and the European Euro Stoxx 50 rose 6.2%, 6.9%, 2.5% and 9.1% in euros, respectively. However, emerging markets moved in the opposite direction: the MSCI Emerging Markets index fell by 4.1% in October. Compared to world stock markets, the Baltic stock exchanges remained relatively neutral: during the month, the Tallinn and Riga stock exchanges fell by 0.6% and 0.4%, respectively, and the Vilnius stock exchange rose by 1%.

In the same month, encouraging quarterly results supported the fund’s listed equity investments. Among European investments, bank shares saw the most success, as the financial results of this sector are improved by rising interest income. Among US investments, shares of Valaris and Freeport McMoran, related to mineral resources, rose the most. Most of the fund’s share positions are related to mineral resources and companies that process them, which in many cases are earning record profits in the context of high commodity prices.

The rising price of money led to a decline in asset prices
Andres Viisemann, Head of LHV Pension Funds

The year 2022 was pivotal for securities markets. In early January, several of the world’s largest and most important stock indexes were at all-time highs, and global bond markets held more than 10 trillion dollars worth of low-risk bonds that investors were willing to pay to hold.

Pension agreement

The state does not tax payments from the 3rd pension pillar if you have concluded an insurance contract under which regular pension payments will be made to you for the rest of your life.

Resale of shares

After reaching the age of 55 (if you started making Pillar III contributions before 2021), but not before five years have elapsed from the initial investment, the income tax on disbursements is 10%. If you have joined the third pillar before 2021 and want to take out what you have collected before the age of 55, the income tax is 20%. Those who have joined the third pillar from 2021 can withdraw money from the third pillar at a more favorable income tax rate (10%) if there is less than 5 years until retirement age.

The third pillar savings can also be bequeathed

The heir can then decide what to do with the inherited assets—whether to transfer them to their pension account or to withdraw the amount in cash.
Income tax of 20% applies to cash withdrawals.
