Too complex for an amateur like myself.
My feeling is that the quarterly, half-yearly and full year snapshot valuations of European government bonds etc, held for the long-term, will be as volatile as the underlying markets, with corresponding volatility carried into the balance sheet. The drop in yields and reciprocal rise in bond values since previous crisis points might well be at work here.
