Ever wondered how the world's largest sovereign wealth fund, the Government Pension Fund Global, Oslo, is managed? Well, now's your chance to find out.
In tandem with the 200th birthday of Norges Bank's establishment, following Norway's separation from Denmark; and the 20th anniversary of Norway's Ministry of Finance's first capital transfer to the fund, Norges Bank and the Norwegian Petroleum Museum have launched an anniversary exhibit at the museum in Stavanger, Norway, according to the museum's website.
“From Oil Wealth to Financial Wealth” provides insight into how Norges Bank manages the fund's roughly 7 trillion Norwegian kroner ($851 billion) of assets.
The exhibit traces the history of the Norwegian central bank and the fund, and visitors also have the chance to turn money manager: There is a quiz to test their knowledge about the fund, and their abilities as money managers.
The exhibit — available in Norwegian and in English — will be open to the public for one year.
