The Tuvalu Trust Fund.

The Tuvalu Trust fund was set up in 1987, under an International Agreement signed by Tuvalu and development partners namely New Zealand, Australia and the UK, who initially contributed to the Fund.

Tuvalu Trust funds are invested internationally in a combination of shares, listed property, fixed interest deposits and bonds. There are two accounts: the A account is the growth capital which is managed with the objective of maintaining the real purchasing power of the Fund, with distributions made from the A account when fund growth exceeds the rate of inflation. The B account is a buffer fund of unspent distributions. Since 1996, the B account has been referred to in the Government's Budget as the Consolidated Investment Fund and plays a key role given that the value of the A fund can fluctuate depending on international financial markets.

Who We Are ?

The establishment of the TTF was marked by the signing of an international agreement between The Tuvalu Government and potential donors. The donors involved at the establishment stage were UK, Australia and New Zealand only. Japan and Korea came in the following year but have since not really increased their contributions into the fund. in Suva on 16 June 1987. The purpose of the Fund (as stated in the International Agreement) is to contribute to the long-term financial viability of Tuvalu by providing an additional source of revenue for recurrent expenses of the Government of Tuvalu. The TTF therefore aims to:

  • Assist the Government to achieve greater financial authority in the management of its recurrent budget;
  • Enable the Government to maintain and if possible improve existing levels of social infrastructure and services;
  • Enhance the capacity of the Government to receive and effectively utilize external capital development and technical assistance;
  • Enable the Government to meet long-term maintenance and operating costs of social and economic infrastructure and services; and
  • Assist the Government to develop the economy of Tuvalu.
