•   During the first quarter of 2016, the value of the public’s financial assets portfolio remained essentially unchanged (compared with the balance at the end of the fourth quarter of 2015), at about NIS 3.31 trillion at the end of the quarter.  
  •   The stability in the portfolio value in the first quarter derived from an increase in cash and deposits and in tradeable corporate bonds, which was offset nearly completely by a decline in the value of shares in Israel and abroad.
  •   The value of the asset portfolio managed by institutional investors increased by about 0.9 percent (NIS 12 billion) in the first quarter of 2016, to about NIS 1.37 trillion. The increase was mainly in the value of government bonds, corporate bonds in Israel and abroad. This increase was partly offset by a decline in the value of shares abroad  and makam.
  •  The trend of net withdrawals from money market funds continued in the first quarter of 2016 (withdrawals of NIS 11.6 billion, 5.1 percent).
