About Norges Bank
Norges Bank, established in 1816, is the central bank of Norway. The bank does not offer any banking services to the general public. Its mandate is to promote economic stability in Norway. Norges Bank has executive and advisory responsibilities in the area of monetary policy and is responsible for promoting robust and efficient payment systems and financial markets. Norges Bank, via its subsidiary Norges Bank Investment Management, manages Norway's foreign exchange reserves and the Government Pension Fund Global, also known as the Oil Fund, which was established in 1990 to invest the surplus revenues of the Norwegian petroleum sector. This is the largest sovereign wealth fund in the world.
