first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Dow Jones:Norway’s sovereign-wealth fund said on Thursday it may stop buying oil and gas stocks, a move that would deprive the energy sector of investment from a $1 trillion asset manager.The Norwegian central bank, which uses the fund to invest the proceeds of the country’s oil industry, said that investing money back into the energy sector amplifies the government’s exposure to the price of crude, particularly given the country’s majority stake in Statoil ASA.Oil and gas equities currently account for around 6% of the Government Pension Fund Global’s benchmark index, or just more than 300 billion Norwegian kroner ($36.49 billion).The Stoxx Europe 600 Oil & Gas index drifted lower on the news of the potential divestment, before recovering. Shares in Statoil fell by as much as 1%. The fund also owns large stakes in most of the world’s oil majors, including a 0.92% stake in Chevron Corp., a 0.82% stake in Exxon Mobil Corp., 1.65% in BP PLC and 2.23% in Royal Dutch Shell PLC as of the end of 2016.“An orderly divestment process over a period of time won’t significantly impact share prices,” said Jefferies analyst Jason Gammel.Norges Bank, the central bank, made the proposal to Norway’s Ministry of Finance on Thursday, saying that, given its size, the fund accounts for an increasingly large share of the nation’s wealth and is an integral part of government fiscal policy. That means that the vulnerability of government wealth to a permanent drop in oil and gas prices would be reduced if the fund pulled out of the stocks in that sector, Norges Bank said.More: Norway Considers Pulling Its $1 Trillion Wealth Fund Out of Oil Stocks $1 Trillion Norwegian Fund Weighs Dropping Oil and Gas Stockslast_img read more

first_imgGiwa said that she has been able to engage with the campus community more directly since working full-time in her position. “What I’m most excited about is helping the University be able to move forward with starting these conversations,” Giwa said. “I’m very excited for students to have some avenues to bring their perspective forward.” Ethics and Compliance Vice President Stacy Giwa said she will be working with the Barrett Values Centre to create a survey for the campus community to share their principles. (Photo courtesy of USC Photo Gus Ruelas) In addition to serving as vice president of the Office, Giwa is also a supporting member of the President’s Culture Commission. Interim President Wanda Austin announced the commission members last November and said it “will oversee [USC’s] efforts to improve campus culture.” According to USC News, Giwa trained as a lawyer and began her career in labor and employment litigation. One of her first tasks at USC is updating the Code of Ethics, which was last updated in 2014. Part of the redrafting process will involve a survey from the Barrett Values Centre, which helps measure the culture of workplace environments. “We will … undertake a process where we engage with [students, faculty and staff] … to open a dialogue to revisit University values,” Giwa said. “It’s been nice for me to have the additional time here at the University with the different stakeholder groups,” Giwa said. center_img Giwa stressed the importance of her office incorporating the values of University stakeholders. She said her role will provide structure for students, faculty and staff to have discussions about USC’s values and ethics. Giwa joined the office in November, but said that she began her full-time position at the beginning of January. According to Giwa, the Office has three primary responsibilities: overseeing the University for overall compliance, ensuring ethical decision-making and implementing overarching culture initiatives. About a month into her full-time position as vice president of USC’s Office of Ethics and Compliance, Stacy Giwa said she is on a long-term journey to uphold the values of the USC community. Giwa said that before the survey is sent out, USC officials will sit down with the Barrett Values Centre to form an “engagement plan” to prepare for responses from the USC Community. “The survey is just a tool to enable further discussions and engagement [about the University’s values],” Giwa said. “When we do ask people to engage in a survey, we can also commit to them that we have an engagement plan to follow up on what we hear … and get more feedback on the survey results themselves.” last_img read more
