Norway’s SWF Touches a Trillion USD in Assets

UPDATED – September 17, 2017
The wealth fund’s administrators said the fund officially hit US$ 1 trillion on September 19, 2017 at 2:01 a.m. local time.

“I don’t think anyone expected the fund to ever reach 1 trillion dollars when the first transfer of oil revenue was made in May 1996. Reaching 1 trillion dollars is a milestone, and the growth in the fund’s market value has been stunning”, said Yngve Slyngstad, chief executive officer at Norges Bank Investment Management in a September 19th statement.
