The Fiji National Provident Fund has recorded an 8.9 percent increase in net profit.
In his presentation at the annual member forum in Labasa, FNPF Chief Executive Jaoji Koroi says they recorded a net profit of $538.7million for the year ending 30th June, 2018.
In 2017, the FNPF recorded $395.5million in net profit while they recorded $331.6million in 2016.
Koroi attributes the increase to the changes made in their accounting policy – the move to record their investments in subsidiaries at fair value.

FNPF also recorded an increase in contributions they collected.

Last year, contributions collected amounted to $546.2 million.
Koroi says this is an outstanding achievement as they were averaging collection of $49.9million per month.
