The fund is invested worldwide in equities, fixed income and real estate, totaling around 8,200 billion kroner (1 trillion dollars). Our mission is to safeguard and build financial wealth for the future generations of Norway through responsible management of the fund.
As manager of one of the world's largest investment funds we aim to make the most of the funds two distinguishing characteristics, its long-term approach and its considerable size, to get the highest possible return on the fund within the investment mandate set by the Ministry of Finance. We also seek to contribute to efficient and well-functioning markets and promote work on international standards for responsible investment.
The fund is invested worldwide in equities, fixed income and real estate. The international scope of investments is reflected in our organisation, which has expanded abroad since being set up in 1998. Our main office is located in Oslo. We also have offices in London, New York, Shanghai and Singapore. Our global presence gives us better access to investment opportunities and ensures that we can follow up the fund's investments around the clock.
