The Group's returns on financial assets represent the difference between income and expenses from financial assets. In 2011 they amounted to EUR 53.0 million, compared to EUR 60.0 million the year before. Negative returns were caused by a permanent impairment of financial assets in the amount of EUR 63.2 million, which were carried out by Zavarovalnica Triglav due to the developments in the Slovene banking sector and the general financial crisis, forcing it to impair Greek securities holdings.
