Its portfolio is evenly split at 25% each across domestic and foreign stocks and domestic and foreign bonds.

I don't know why this fund even exists, beyond symbolism. It's stuffed with securities. In other words, it's not used for funding our pensions. if so it would need to be stuffed with cash.

The authorities certainly don't encash stocks and bonds every time a pensioner collects his-her bimonthly payment. LOL. Those would be massive transactions that would routinely sway markets. But they dont, because they don't happen.

The people running this fund are at the mercy of the MoF and the JGB. They do not publish figures on their quarterlay and annualized returns, or their portfolio balances. The pensions of an entire nation are surrounded by smoke and mirrors. and most likely being used to bail out failing Japanese corporations like Hitachi and Panasonic. Why is there no investigative journalism in this country?
