I got the data from one of my investing banks about Swedish Investors most owned Finnish stocks at the end of 2018. This is accurate data for one of the bigger stock banks in Sweden. But in general it could be a little misleading or maybe not. Nevertheless I will write down the list of most popular Finland stocks the Swedish small investors owned at the end of 2018.
At the moment I own 4 of the stocks from the list but iam thinking of adding one more. Finland is a small country but with some high quality companies. Some of the companies are big in market cap size.
In 2019, the Finnish economy is expected to grow by 1.7 % and by 2020, the economy is expected to increase by 1.5 %, according to Danske Bank. Finland’s economy is affected of how the Russian economy develops. In 2019, the Russian economy is expected to grow by about 1.4 %.
Do you own any stock from the list? Feel free to comment.
