CHILE - The Central Bank of Chile has raised the amount of assets pension funds can invest internationally to 80% from 60%.
The bank said yesterday it would raise the limit gradually, rising by five percentage points every three months starting December. The limit will reach 80% by September 2011.
The modification reflects the government's economic policy, the bank said in a statement.
