• During the first quarter of 2018, the value of the public's financial assets portfolio increased by about NIS 28.7 billion (0.8 percent), to about NIS 3.65 trillion at the end of the quarter.
  • The increase in the portfolio value in the first quarter derived from an increase in the volume of investments abroad and an increase in the bond components.
  • The value of the asset portfolio managed by institutional investors increased by about 1 percent in the first quarter of 2018, less than the quarterly growth rate in the past two years, to about NIS 1.6 trillion. The increase was a result of increases in the balance of investments abroad, and in the government bonds component, which were partly offset by declines in cash, deposits, and shares in Israel.
  • In the first quarter of the year, there were net deposits in mutual funds totaling about NIS 2.1 billion, lower than the average in the previous four quarters.​
