Norges Bank’s Foreign Exchange Purchases in October

In October, Norges Bank will purchase foreign exchange equivalent to NOK 500 million per day for the Government Pension Fund Global.

The Fund’s foreign exchange requirements are partly met by the state’s direct financial interest in petroleum activities (SDFI) and partly by Norges Bank’s purchases in the market.

The Ministry of Finance determines the size of the monthly allocations to the Fund. Norges Bank’s purchases of foreign exchange are equal to the difference between the allocations and the SDFI’s estimated foreign exchange revenues. Adjustments are made for any revisions of estimates. As a result, the daily purchases may vary from one month to the next. The daily foreign exchange purchases are determined for a period of one month at a time and are published on the last business day of the preceding month.
