Dear all,

You are cordially invited to the next Distinguished Lecture Series Conference, hosted by:

Øyvind Hernes, the First Secretary of the Embassy of Norway

this Wednesday at 5:45 PM, in the Big Lecture Room.

The Government Pension Fund – Global (Norwegian: Statens pensjonsfond – Utland, SPU) is a fund into which the surplus wealth produced by Norwegian petroleum income is deposited. The fund changed name in January 2006 from its previous name, The Petroleum Fund of Norway. The fund is commonly referred to as The Oil Fund (Norwegian: Oljefondet).
As of the valuation in June 2011, it was the largest pension fund in the world, although it is not actually a pension fund as it derives its financial backing from oil profits and not pension contributions.

See you all there! The DLS Team.
