9th September 2023 | Hong Kong

Norway sovereign wealth fund Government Pension Fund Global managed by Norges Bank Investment Management with $1.43 trillion AUM (Assets under Management) is closing the Shanghai office (China), with the Shanghai office (8 people) invested in 850 companies with $42 billion value.  Norges Bank Investment Management: “The decision is driven by operational considerations and does not affect the fund’s investment strategy or our investments in China.  Our representative office in Shanghai has been in operation since November 2007. We currently have 8 people at the office. Over the years, our Singapore office has increasingly served as the hub for the whole of the Asian region and has been built up to take care of all operational functions, including for China. Effectively, the decision to close the office in Shanghai is therefore only an adjustment of our operating business model … … We will ensure that the closing process is conducted in an orderly manner for all affected persons at the office and in line with local requirements and procedures.”  Earlier in August 2023, Norges Bank reported returns of +10% equivalent to $140 billion for 2023 1st half, with portfolio performance of Equities +13.7%, Fixed Income +2.2%, Unlisted Real Estate -4.6%, Unlisted Renewal Energy Infrastructure -6.5%.  Government Pension Fund Global Portfolio Allocation – 71.3% Equities, 26.4% Fixed Income, 2.3% Unlisted Real Estate, 0.1% Unlisted Renewal Energy Infrastructure.  More info below.

We are responsible for the operational management of the oil fund. Our objective is the highest possible return on the fund. We aim to achieve this in a safe, efficient, responsible and transparent manner, and within government guidelines. The fund is invested worldwide and so we are an international organisation with a global outlook.

 

Norway Government Pension Fund Global

Norway’s oil fund, or the Government Pension Fund Global which is its official name, was created after we discovered oil in the North Sea. The fund was set up to shield the economy from ups and downs in oil revenue. It also serves as a financial reserve and as a long-term savings plan so that both current and future generations get to benefit from our oil wealth.

In 1969, one of the world’s largest offshore oilfields was discovered off Norway. Suddenly we had a lot of oil to sell, and the country’s economy grew dramatically. It was decided early on that revenue from oil and gas should be used cautiously in order to avoid imbalances in the economy. In 1990, the Norwegian parliament passed legislation to support this, creating what is now the Government Pension Fund Global, and the first money was deposited in the fund in 1996. As the name suggests, it was decided that the fund should only be invested abroad.  Oil revenue has been very important for Norway, but one day the oil will run out. The aim of the fund is to ensure that we use this money responsibly, think long-term and so safeguard the future of the Norwegian economy.

Although revenue from oil and gas production is transferred to the fund, these deposits account for less than half the value of the fund. Most of it has been earned by investing in equities, fixed income, real estate and renewable energy infrastructure.

The fund is now one of the world’s largest funds, owning almost 1.5 percent of all shares in the world’s listed companies. This means that we have holdings in around 9,000 companies worldwide, entitling us to a small share of their profits each year. In addition, the fund owns hundreds of buildings in some of the world’s leading cities, which generate rental income for us. The fund also receives a steady flow of income from lending to countries and companies. By spreading our investments widely, we reduce the risk of the fund losing money.
