Nordnet publishes Annual and Sustainability Report for 2018

As of today, Friday 22 March 2019, Nordnet’s Annual and Sustainability Report for 2018 is available via the Group’s website www.nordnetab.com.

–   2018 was an eventful year for both Nordnet and the savers. There were major fluctuations on the Nordic stock exchanges, and in some periods, strong negative development. However, the savers did not passively follow the developments from the stands, but instead were very active and reviewed their investments to a record extent. Nordnet’s own agenda was at least as rich in content as the savers with a number of product launches and partnerships, as well as a strong growth in customers and savings, says Anders Danielsson, acting CEO of Nordnet.

  • New app for Android and iPhone launched on all Nordic markets, tripled rating in app store
