Boerse Stuttgart opens Nordic Growth Market trading segment for Swedish equities
Boerse Stuttgart and its Scandinavian subsidiary Nordic Growth Market (NGM) are combining their services in the equity sector.
Small and medium-sized enterprises are very active on the Swedish capital market: Nordic SME, NGM’s multilateral trading platform for equities of growth companies, currently offers trading in 65 securities with a market capitalization of around 40 billion Swedish crowns. The focus in terms of sectors is typical for the Swedish economy: technology, finance, real estate and industrials.
“The possible inclusion of their equities in Boerse Stuttgart’s new trading segment makes Swedish companies more visible on the capital market of the euro zone, allowing them to expand their investor base. This will increase NGM’s attractiveness to companies wishing to be newly listed in Sweden. EUWAX AG provides a liquidity bridge between the two trading venues. For German investors, the new trading segment offers easy access to a section of the Swedish capital market. Investors benefit from the direct link between NGM as the primary listing venue, and Boerse Stuttgart as the secondary listing venue,” commented Dr Michael Völter, Chairperson of the Management Board of Vereinigung Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse e.V. and of the Board of Directors at NGM.
