The Marketplace

At Nasdaq, we adhere to EU standards and directives for all of our European listings. In this framework, a company lists in one MiFID regulated country and trading takes place under the supervision of that country’s Financial Services Agency (FSA).

No matter what country is the point of access, the Nasdaq marketplace offers the same solution for trading, clearing, surveillance, index, sectors and more across the region.

Main Market or First North?

A primary listing can be either on the main market or on our growth market, First North.

The main market is regulated and follows EU directives and is suited to companies that can adhere to the highest standards for reporting, transparency and accountability.

First North has less extensive reporting requirements and is a starting place for smaller companies to reach the capital markets, to grow and to work towards a listing on the main market.
