We manage the fund on behalf of the Norwegian people – both current and future generations. We are dependent on confidence to achieve our mission, so we aim to be a professional, transparent and responsible investment manager. However, there are some topics we cannot inform about – matters that others should discuss, and information that is market sensitive. Otherwise, our goal is for the people of Norway and others to be able to find all the information they need about the fund and its investments.

High level of transparency about companies and countries
Norwegian business daily Dagens Næringsliv published an article on Tuesday 24 March giving the impression that we have consciously sought to conceal that the fund has investments in companies registered in so-called secrecy jurisdictions. We refute this. We report annually on all our holdings, and this year we have expanded our reporting to include both more detailed and more consistent information than before.
Questions about individual investments or assessments of future market developments may be market sensitive and therefore cannot normally be discussed by Norges Bank Investment Management. .
A press conference is held in connection with publication of the report. The press conference is webcasted from Norges Bank's website (in Norwegian).
