The Nordic

Potential

The main benefit with the Nordic markets is that they are concentrated and have a significant asset pool in a close geographical reach. The investors are everything from sophisticated tier 1 Institutions having relevant internal resources to smaller institutions with organisational limitations. The characteristics among the Nordic countries differs, Sweden with an equity tilt and Denmark with a more fixed income bias. Finland has around 20 tier 1 institutions and Norway is heavily influenced by the “petroleum” fund. Sweden alone being the 8th biggest fund market in the world and Norway having the largest sovereign wealth fund says it all. All countries have well performing pension systems and stable welfare structures.
