"Nordic Growth Market": giving you access to the Nordic capital market
Did you know that Swedish people are very keen stock market investors? While Germans only invest around a fifth of their money in equities and other financial instruments, the Swedes invest almost half. As a result, there are also considerably more stock market flotations than in Germany: because young Swedish growth companies see mainly the opportunities that the capital market offers, they do not shy away from the stock market.
