The Icelandic economy experience a strong growth and has completed a remarkable turnaround after some challenging years following the global financial crisis. Increased interest from foreign investors, both industrial and private equity, clearly indicates that the former economic and political challenges are rapidly decreasing.

As two of the leading nations within the field of fisheries and aquaculture, Norway and Iceland attract a great interest from a large number of investors seeking access to investments within the seafood aquaculture segment.

As the world’s largest stock exchange for seafood companies, the Oslo Stock Exchange enjoy a unique position for companies in the seafood sector. Companies from all over the world turn to the Norwegian market to raise capital, access liquidity for their shares and benefit from a range of world-leading investment research coverage available in Oslo. Investors look to the Oslo market for access to high-quality Norwegian and international companies. With the recent Icelandic lift in capital control, Icelandic companies may benefit from the opportunities in the Norwegian capital markets.

At the seminar we will cover the various aspects of a listing in Norway, from investor environment and opportunities for access to equity funding, through legal requirements and financial aspects of a listing process.

The seminar is also suitable for companies in other industries that are considering listing on The Oslo Stock Exchange.
