Why list loans?

There are a number of reasons why many investors will only buy listed bonds and certificates, including:

  • The requirement for an approved prospectus ensures that investors have access to all the information relevant to their investment decision
  • Issuers have a continuing duty to provide the market with financial information and to notify any developments significant for the pricing of their interest-bearing securities
  • Professional and systematic surveillance of the market ensures fair and proper trading
  • Organised and efficient trading through a reliable trading system
  • Information on the market and individual issues is available on the Oslo Børs website.

Other benefits
In addition to gaining access to more investors, listing interest-bearing securities on Oslo Børs offers a number of other benefits:

  • Publicity for the issuer on the Oslo Børs website
  • Some brokers assert that investors accept a lower return for listed loans rather than unlisted loans, and this may help to reduce the issuer's financing costs.
