  • Investment Strategy

    The objective for the management of the GPFN is to maximise financial returns measured in Norwegian kroner, given a moderate level of risk. The main part of the assets of the GPFN is invested in the Norwegian equity and fixed income markets.

  • Fund Performance

    From 1 January 1998 to the end of 2017, the average annual nominal return on the GPFG was 6.1 percent as measured in the currency basket of the Fund. The nominal return net of asset management costs and inflation (net real return) is in the said period calculated at 4.2 percent.

  • Market Value

    The market value of the GPFG equalled 8,484 billion Norwegian kroner at the end of 2017. Investments in equities, fixed-income and unlisted real estate corresponded to 5,650 billion, 2,600 billion and 220 billion kroner, respectively, equivalent to a proportion of Fund assets of 66.6 percent, 30.8 percent and 2.6 percent.

  • Investment Strategy

    The investment strategy of the GPFG has been developed over time, based on comprehensive professional assessments. The objective of the Fund's investments is to achieve the highest possible return over time, given a moderate level of risk. The Fund has, generally speaking, a high risk bearing capacity. The appropriate risk level for the Fund will, nevertheless, depend on the risk tolerance of the owners, represented by the political authorities.

  • Strategic Benchmark Index

    The mandate issued by the Ministry of Finance to Norges Bank expresses the long-term investment strategy for the Fund, including the strategic benchmark index and appurtenant provisions on the execution of the management assignment. The strategic benchmark index comprises separate indices for the equity and fixed-income portfolio. In 2017, the Parliament supported a proposal from the Governement to increase the equity allocation to 70 percent. When the implementation is completed, the fixed income portfolio will account for 30 percent of the strategic benchmark index. The equity portion has been selected on the basis of the long-term trade-off between expected return and risk
