Norway Fund’s Top Russia Holding Include VTB, GAZ Auto

July 25 (Bloomberg) -- Norway’s $890 billion sovereign wealth fund, the world’s biggest, has said it’s reassessing its investments in Russia as the European Union considers expanding sanctions against the country.

The fund will make “the necessary adjustments” if its holdings were to be affected by sanctions against Russia that Norway backs, Runar Malkenes, a Finance Ministry spokesman, said this week. Below is a list of the fund’s 20 biggest stakes in Russian companies, ranked by percent of ownership, as of Dec. 31, according to data from the wealth fund’s website.

The fund held about $3.6 billion in stocks and $4 billion in corporate and government bonds in Russia at the end of 2013, its annual report shows.
