Pension insurance companies must maintain their ability to pay current and future pensions under their responsibility, which is why investment operations must be profitable and sustainable. Profitable investment operations necessitate exposure to investment risks, which are limited to safeguard the solvency requirements.

Market risks arising from fluctuations in economic cycles in the financial market are managed both through solvency capital regulations and by ensuring that the investment portfolio is sufficiently diversified. As of the start of 2007, pension institutions bear part of the market risks jointly.
