Governance model

The fund’s governance model builds on a clear delegation of duties and effective systems for control and supervision.

The formal framework for the fund has been laid down by the Storting – the Norwegian parliament – in the Government Pension Fund Act. The Ministry of Finance has the overall responsibility for the fund’s management and has issued guidelines for its management in the Management Mandate for the Government Pension Fund Global. Norges Bank has been tasked with the management of the fund, and its Executive Board has delegated the operational management of the fund to Norges Bank Investment Management. 

Supplementary governing documents are laid down for the fund’s management.
