Dual-listing Benefits

Mirroring your business reach, a European dual-listing gives you the opportunity to broaden your investor base and increase visibility and brand awareness.

  • Increased visibility and brand awareness
    Gain attention in the European market from an investor, analyst and media perspective, resulting in a stronger brand awareness and additional research coverage. Greater visibility and a broadened investor base are achieved through inclusion in key NASDAQ OMX indexes.
  • Broadened investor base
    Become eligible for inclusion in several types of equity funds targeting Europe, funds which you would otherwise not qualify for. Additionally, clock in more trades as you cross more time zones.
  • Eligibility for inclusion in key primary European indexes
    Companies listed on NASDAQ OMX are all eligible for inclusion in our indexes, which in turn puts your company in front of institutional investors. The Stockholm 30 Index (OMXS30) is amongst the top four most traded blue chip indexes in Europe.
  • Greater liquidity and valuations
    With our world-leading exchange technology, high liquidity and best execution, our market is a more efficient place to trade. On NASDAQ OMX, the spreads between bid and ask prices are narrower than the other major exchanges in Europe. This is the case for blue chips as well as small cap companies. Trades will grow, investor costs will decrease and your shareholders will benefit from minimal risk of price volatility.

The Process

The process for a secondary listing on the NASDAQ OMX marketplace can take from one to four months, depending on where you have your primary listing.

If your stock is already listed on an approved stock market, you can use some of your current legal and auditor reviews to satisfy a number of our listing requirements.
