The provision and financing of pensions is arranged through a pension fund included on the Bank of Finland’s balance sheet. The objective of the Bank of Finland pension fund is to manage the assets held to cover the Bank's pension liability in accordance with the generally accepted principles for the management of pension assets. These may deviate from the principles applied to the investment of the Bank's financial assets.

The value of pension fund assets totalled EUR 613 million at the end of 2016, while the pension liability stood at EUR 564 million.
