We hope that you find the reports informative and would welcome any feedback you may have on them! Note, the October - December report every year is included in the annual report.

2021 Nordic Surveillance Report

From a surveillance perspective the primary focus is to support the development of the Nordic Markets by upholding market integrity, capital formation, and investor protection. During 2021, 206 companies were listed on the Nasdaq Nordic markets – one of the highest numbers ever recorded during a single year. As a result of the high number of listings, we have during the last year initiated several initiatives to ensure sufficient capacity to manage ongoing surveillance of listed companies. For 2022, a focus area will be to further enhance the use of technology to enable us to perform an even more efficient Surveillance of the Nordic markets, e.g. by implementing tools for monitoring activity on social media platforms.
