Giant Norway fund manager puts searchable holdings and voting data on website

April 20th, 2010

Norges Bank Investment Management, the arm of the Norwegian central bank which manages the assets of the NOK2.7trn (€347bn) Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global, has enhanced its website to allow users to search its equity and fixed income holdings and voting records.

As well as offering continuous updates on the fund’s market value, NBIM says there’s also a new search device enabling users to find information on the fund’s holdings and voting records “by region, country and company”. The fund owns around 1% of the world’s listed companies.

The development enables readers to see the giant fund’s equity holdings in, say, China.

A quick glance through the data reveals that the fund has 941 investments in the country, worth around NOK23.9bn (€3bn). An analysis throws up some interesting snippets, such as the fact that it has 55 investments in the Cayman Islands worth some NOK4.5bn (€556m).
