South Korea's National Pension Service records 10.27% yield for Jan-Oct

South Korea's National Pension Service (NPS) has reported a 10.27% yield on its investments from January to October, driven by robust performances in both local and international stocks. The value of the fund's assets under management reached KRW997.38tr (USD739bn) by the end of October. This is a significant recovery from last year when the pension fund experienced its lowest return at -8.28% due to global market uncertainties. This year, positive shifts in the global market and favourable currency rates have benefited the fund. Specifically, the NPS recorded a 17.25% return on local stocks and a 20.15% yield on overseas stocks. Additionally, investments in local bonds and alternative assets, including real estate, yielded returns of 6.85% and 6.37% respectively. In previous years, NPS investment returns were 10.77% in 2020 and 10.86% in 2021.
