Norges Bank will not purchase foreign exchange for the Government Pension Fund – Global in January
The Norwegian SWF is administered by Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), a division of the Norwegian Central Bank.
According to the Press Release by Norges Bank, “the Fund’s foreign exchange requirements are partly met by the state’s direct financial interest in petroleum activities (SDFI) and partly by Norges Bank’s purchases in the market.
The Ministry of Finance determines the size of the monthly allocations to the Fund. Norges Bank’s purchases of foreign exchange are equal to the difference between the allocations and the SDFI’s estimated foreign exchange revenues. Adjustments are made for any revisions of estimates for the previous month. As a result, the daily purchases may vary from one month to the next. The daily foreign exchange purchases are determined for a period of one month at a time and are published on the last business day of the preceding month.”
