OSLO (Reuters) - Norway's $930 billion sovereign wealth fund, the world's largest, has lost 1.33 trillion Norwegian crowns ($124 billion) so far this year as stock markets plunged amid the coronavirus outbreak, it said on Thursday.

The year-to-date loss on its investment portfolio is 16.2%, all but erasing the 20% gains made last year.

The fund's stock market portfolio, its main asset class, has lost 22.8% of its value, it added.
