Norway's giant pension fund is now worth over $1 trillion – yes, 1 followed by 12 zeros.
"I don't think anyone expected the fund to ever reach $1 trillion when the first transfer of oil revenue was made in May 1996," fund chief Yngve Slyngstad said in a statement.
Norway is a major oil producer, and it has plowed its energy earnings into the fund in order to fund pensions and other government expenses – the fund's value works out to over $190,000 for each of Norway's 5.2 million citizens.
The fund is among the world's biggest investors in stocks, owning $667 billion worth of shares in over 9,000 companies globally.
Its largest holdings are in Apple, Nestle, Royal Dutch Shell, Novartis, Microsoft and Alphabet, the owner of Google.
The fund also owns large real estate portfolio, including stakes in buildings at the world's most desirable addresses, such as Times Square in New York, Regent Street in London, and Champs Elysees in Paris.
