World's largest sovereign wealth fund indirectly holds almost 600 Bitcoin


21 Sep 2020

#Bitcoin

Mainstream finance giants may hold more Bitcoin than you think. The Norwegian Government Pension Fund, also known as the Oil Fund, has over $1 trillion in assets, including 1.4% of all global stocks and shares. It is considered the world's largest sovereign wealth fund. According to Arcane Research’s report on Sept. 19, the fund also owns almost 600 Bitcoin (BTC) through its investment holdings.

Arcane Research analysis data shows that the Norwegian oil fund has 577.6 BTC through its investment in business intelligence firm MicroStrategy. This puts the company’s portfolio in BTC at around $6.3 million. The Norwegian Government Pension Fund has a 1.51% stake in MicroStrategy.

Michael Saylor, MicroStrategy founder, said in a recent tweet that the company owns 38,250 BTC.   

In addition, two other major investment advisory companies, BlackRock Fund Advisors and the Vanguard Group, have a 15.24% stake (5829.30 BTC) and a share of 11.72% (4482.90 BTC), respectively. Cointelegraph previously reported that BlackRock, as the biggest shareholder in MicroStrategy, indirectly holds BTC.

The Vanguard Group is an American investment advisor with about $6.2 trillion in global assets under management (AUM) as of January 31, 2020. It is the largest mutual funds provider and the second-largest provider of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the world after BlackRock’s iShares. BlackRock Fund Advisors, on the other hand, has $7.3 trillion in AUM. 

MicroStrategy has made a lot of headlines in the past few days as it announced a bold plan to invest in Bitcoin. As the latest mainstream giant to enter the space, MicroStrategy first bought 21,454 BTC for $250 million in August and another 16,796 BTC for $175 million in September.
