Norway's Fund Targets $100 Billion in U.S. Stocks
Updated on

Norway’s wealth fund proposed overhauling its global holdings, calling for a shift away from Europe in a move that would allow it to boost its U.S. stock investments by as much $100 billion and take a larger chunk of the biggest technology companies.

In a letter sent to the Finance Ministry released on Tuesday, the $1 trillion fund recommended that its investments “be adjusted further towards float-adjusted market weights by increasing the weight of equities in North America and reducing the weight of equities in European developed markets.”
