1.2 Financial assets
Subsidiaries include all entities over which the Fund has the power – directly or indirectly – to control financial and operational policies. Subsidiaries are valued under the net equity method, but not lower than zero.
The equity value is measured by valuation of assets, provisions and liabilities and determination of results based on the accounting policies of the consolidated financial statements.
Recognition of losses
If the share in losses attributable to the Fund exceeds the carrying amount of the net investment (investment and other unsecured receivables), further losses will not be recognised, unless the Fund has provided securities to the associate, committed to liabilities or paid on behalf of the associate. In that case, a provision will be set aside for the excess.
