Annual Report 2017

Growth in Norwegian society

The Norwegian economy is growing well. Like their European counterparts, the Norwegian authorities are focusing on measures that contribute to business sector growth. The use of securities to finance small business growth is regarded as important for growth in society. Low-threshold services and incentives are therefore being introduced to facilitate this growth in both the EU and Norway. As a market operator, we have developed our marketplaces to meet this need.
