F5 Defined benefit pension plans
The Group has several defined benefit group pension insurance plans, which cover personnel who transferred to Finnvera from previous organisations, and supplementary pension insurance plans for Management Group members and Regional Directors appointed before 2 April 2009. At the end of the year, there were 120 people covered by the plans. When a person resigns or retires, the insurance is changed to a defined contribution plan, because paid-up policies and pensions are increased by a credit issued by the insurance provider.
The plans are funded with annual contributions paid to the insurance company and based on actuarial calculations. The plans are subject to local tax and other legislation
The obligation is shown as the pledge made to all insurees and the asset is shown as the share of this obligation assumed by the insurance provider. The amount of assets is calculated using the same discount interest rate as an equivalent obligation. As a result, the risk posed by changes in the discounted interest rate only affects the net liabilities. A hypothetical 0.25% increase in salary would increase the obligation 1.4% (1.4%) and, correspondingly, an equivalent decrease would have the opposite effect.
