Norway’s Government Pension Fund Global, one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds, raised its bets on Reliance group companies even as it began to exit Adani Group stocks.

The $1.3-trillion fund announced earlier this month that it had completely exited Adani Group companies, citing concerns over environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks, among other reasons.

The group has denied any wrongdoing.
