MANILA, Philippines — The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) grew its first-quarter profit by 21 percent year-on-year on the back of higher earnings from investments in key sectors.

In a statement on Wednesday, the pension fund for government workers reported a bottom line of P37 billion in the first three months of 2024, higher than the P30.75 billion it had netted in the same period last year.

Revenues jumped by 17 percent to P85 billion.


GSIS President and General Manager Wick Veloso attributed the growth to bigger and “sustained” returns from investments that brought the fund life of the GSIS to 2058.

Global investments

On global investments, figures showed that GSIS income from financial assets had gone up by P28 billion.

Meanwhile, net gains on sale and mark-to-market valuation of local equities and exchange-traded funds resulted in revenue from equities soaring by 234 percent to P10 billion.

On the expenditures side, GSIS said maintenance and other operating expenses were 41 percent below budget, while administrative costs remained “significantly below” the limit set by the GSIS charter.
