OSLO (Reuters) - Norway's $1.15 trillion sovereign wealth fund remains invested in British bonds although the country's gilts are likely to be relatively volatile going forward, the fund's deputy CEO told Reuters on Friday.

"It's a challenging time for the UK, so in many ways that hasn't really changed," deputy CEO Trond Grande said.

"I think we just should expect there could be a higher volatility in the UK gilts than in some of the other big markets."

The British pound was the fund's fourth biggest fixed income investment by the end of 2021.
