“This is an extremely volatile year in the global capital markets. Therefore, it is even more important that INDEXO pension management indicators are becoming stronger, namely, along with the number of customers we are also increasing the amount of monthly pension contributions, assets under management and the revenues. It proves resilience and potential of INDEXO business, which, in turn, ensures increase of long-term value for our shareholders,” said Siksnis.
