The value of foreign direct investments (FDI) from Finland was EUR 85.4 billion at the end of 2015, of which equity investments accounted for EUR 97.7 billion and the value of debt capital for EUR -12.3 billion.
The value of the investment stock went down by EUR 10.7 billion during 2015, according  to Statistics Finland’s data.
Starting from 2013, the figures are not fully comparable with those for 2004 to 2012 due to changes in the international statistical standard.
The value of foreign direct investments to Finland was EUR 74.2 billion, which is EUR 1.6 billion less than at the end of the previous year. Thus, at the end of 2015 Finland still had more outward FDI than inward FDI, although net assets connected to direct investments nearly halved to EUR 11.2 billion from the previous year's EUR 20.3 billion.
Examined by country, Finland's FDI is especially directed to Sweden (34% of the investment stock) and the Netherlands (15%).
Examined by country group, investments are mainly directed to the EU area, whose combined share of the investment stock was 81 per cent at the end of 2015, the statistics show.
Outward FDI generated returns of EUR 6.7 billion in total for Finland in 2015, which is EUR 1.5 billion less than in 2014.
Dividends from these investments amounted to EUR 9.5 billion and interests to EUR 0.4 billion. As a result of decreased income and a smaller investment stock, returns gained by
Finland relative to the value of FDI remained nearly on level with the previous year.
