By the beginning of 2007 there were less than a half of the citizens of categories under question that remained in the APM system, that is 7.7 mln of people. Allocation of RUR 34.9 mln for their provision with medicines was envisaged by the federal budget initially. However in 2007 the cost of really supplied medicines according to the preliminary estimation by the Federal Fund of CHI will be no less than RUR 55 bln.
According to the Federal Law “On the budget of the Federal Fund of Compulsory Health Care for 2008 and for the planned period of 2009 and 2010” from 21.07.07 No 184-ФЗ it if envisaged to assign RUR 15 bln more to settle payments for medicines really supplied in 2007 as well as allocation for these aims of RUR 8.0 bln of the means of the Federal Fund of CHI as a part of subsidies to CHI regional funds and use of up ro RUR 10.3 bln from regular insurance reserve of the Federal Fund of CHI. So, the sum of the means allocated is RUR 68.2 bln.
Thus, the financial results of APM program over 3 years are not satisfactory. In 2006 the sum of the bills drew by distributors for payment for medicines provided for benefit recipients exceeded the initially planned in the budget amount by 2.2 times, on 2007 – by 1.6 times. It is true that provision of benefit recipients with medicines has improved as compared with the situation before 2005, but problems with timely payment by bills drawn by medicines suppliers have led to temporarily reduction in medicines supply, evolution of uncertainty as to the waiting period for prescribed medicines provision. Benefit recipient were given ungrounded hopes that were later replaced by disappointment and dissatisfaction. And all that cost dear to the government - no less than RUR 174 bln over three years, not including the monetary compensation for more than a half of benefit recipients that left the program. In 2008 the number of the benefit recipients has decreased down to 5.5 mln of people, that is equal to 33% of the total number of the population categories that have right to receive social support from the federal budget (16.9 mln of people).
The fulfillment of APM program has made it evident that dismiss of the authorities of the subjects of the Russian Federation from the full-fledged participation in its realization has and the attempt to fulfill this program, concentrating the control at the federal level, was erroneous. As a result a decision to transfer to bodies of government of the subjects of the Russian Federation of authority to organize medicines, medical items and special food for dietotherapy of the disabled children provision for citizens, included in the Federal list pf people having right to receive governmental social support was made (clause 18 of the Federal Law from 10 October 2007 No 230-ФЗ “On making changes to some legislative acts of the Russian Federation in connection with improvement of authority separation”). From 1 January 2008 the organization of order placement for medicines supply according to APM program in the form of auctions, signing of government contracts as well as organization of provision of population with medicines purchased by governmental contracts will be carried out by government bodies of the subjects of the Russian Federation. Financing of APM program will be executed in the form of subventions from the federal budget. The responsibility for excess of APM expenses over the means allocated from the federal budget is in fact transferred to the subjects of the Russian Federation.

Investments of pension savings in the system of mandatory pension insurance in the first half-year L. Mikhailov, L. Sychiova In 2002 – 2006 the total of insurance contributions to the funded component of labor pension amounted to approximately 350 billion roubles. By late 2006, the value of the pension savings invested by the government asset manager (Vneshekonombank) exceeded 267 billion roubles. However, in the first quarter 2007, when the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation (PFR) was transferring to asset managers or independent pension funds (IPF) the contributions to the funded component of labor pension for the year 2005, the total bulk of funds under Vneshekonombank’s management became somewhat smaller. In the procedure of executing citizens’ applications concerning their choice of an asset manager and IPF, Vneshekonombank transferred 9.6 billion roubles to the PFR. As a result, the market value of pension assets under the management of Vneshekonombank as of the end of Q I 2007 amounted to 260.6 billion roubles23, in Q II it increased by 4.1 billion roubles to 265.1 billion roubles, and by the end of Q III this index became equal to 329 billion Hereinafter, the data from the official websites of the PFR and the Federal Service for Financial Markets are applied.
roubles. Its growth in the last period is associated mainly with additional transfers of insurance contributions from the PFR.
The market value of assets in which pension savings were invested by private asset managers (PAM) in Q I 2007 also diminished – to 9.4 billion roubles. This is due to the fact that during that period they were experiencing net outflow of insured persons’ monies, though less significant than that experienced by Vneshekonombank (202 million roubles). In Q II the market value of assets in which pension savings were invested by private asset managers remained practically unchanged.

In Q II, when the external inflow factor was active no more, while the situation on the stock market was not favorable, the results changed only slightly (to 19.25 billion roubles).
The structure of Vneshekonombank’s investments24 and the aggregate investment portfolio of all the PAMs as of the end of Q I and Q II 2007 is shown in Fig. 1-4.

As seen from the diagrams, the structure of pension savings investments held by the government asset manager did not change in any significant way during the quarters. A certain decrease in the share of RF government securities denominated in foreign currencies can be noted (from 10.6 % to 6.7 %). Besides, the PFR for the first time disclosed the investments of pension savings transferred into the trusteeship management in the form of government savings bonds – non-market securities issued by the RF Ministry of Finance specifically for institutional investors. Their sum as of mid-2007 amounted to 66.2 billion roubles25 (or 41 % of the total investments in rouble-denominated government securities (161.5 billion roubles), which constitutes 24.1 % of the total value of managed assets (274.5 billion roubles), or 25 % of the total value of assets managed by Vneshekonombank (265.1 billion roubles).

On the whole, the share of securities with fixed rates of return (federal, subfederal, municipal, corporate bonds) in the aggregate investment portfolio of private asset managers as of the end of Q II 2007 was 58.8 % (against 64 % as of the end of 2005 and 57 % as of the end of 2006). The percentage of shares in the aggregate investment portfolio of PAMs, after having decreased in Q I 2007 from 29.4 to 26.7 %, reversed its trend and amounted to 30 %26. However, in contrast to the situation in 2006, shares did not provide PAMs with an overall high rate of return. As seen by the end of the first half-year 2007, the maximum rate of return (UK The maximum permitted percentage of shares in PAMs’ assets from the year 2007 onward is 65 % Alemar) was only 8 % per annum, while the median value – 2.9 %. The results achieved by PAMs (entrusted with the investment of savings belonging to a considerable number of invested persons) are shown in Table 2. As can be seen by the results of the first half-year 2007, none of the asset managers succeeded in achieving a rate of return higher than that of Vneshekonombank; moreover, two asset managers demonstrated negative investment results. However, over a longer period of time they all demonstrated rates of return higher than the average per annum rate of return on the GAM’s investments, which amounted to 7.98 %.
