Sweden's Fourth National Pension Fund (AP4) is the first of the buffer funds to publish figures for the first half of the year. The numbers are strong; the pension fund delivered a 10 percent return before costs and 9,9 percent after costs.
After the corresponding period last year, AP4’s returns were -2.5 percent.
