European Rules and Regulations
The rules and regulations serve an important purpose to sustain confidence in the financial market, enable a common framework for listed companies and protect minority stakeholders such as retail investors.
Nasdaq operates securities markets in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Iceland. These Nasdaq Nordic Markets which are jointly called the Nasdaq Nordic Main Market are classified as Regulated Markets within the meaning of MiFID II. Beside the Regulated Markets, Nasdaq also operates First North, a market that is classified as a Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF) pursuant to MiFID II. The equity segment, Nasdaq First North Growth Market, is a registered SME Growth Market as defined in MiFID II (as implemented in national law).
The Common Nordic Rules cover the framework for Nasdaq Copenhagen, Nasdaq Helsinki, Nasdaq Iceland and Nasdaq Stockholm within the areas of listing at Nasdaq Nordic Main Market (Nasdaq Nordic Main Market Rules) and Nasdaq First North MTF (Nasdaq First North MTF Rules) as well as cash equity and fixed income trading (Nasdaq Nordic Member Rules).
In addition, Nasdaq Stockholm and Nasdaq Clearing operate the Nasdaq Derivatives Markets, a derivatives exchange for trading and clearing in equity derivatives and fixed income derivatives (Derivatives Rules).
