About the Euronext Oslo
Euronext Oslo (formerly Oslo Børs) is the only regulated market for securities trading in Norway. Headquartered in Norway’s capital city of Oslo, the exchange trades stocks, fixed-income investments, and derivatives. On this page, you’ll learn about the history of Euronext Oslo, the top stocks on the exchange, notable recent risers and fallers, and more.
Oslo Børs was founded in 1818, though it didn’t become a stock exchange until 1881. That year, the exchange listed 16 bond series and 23 stocks, including the stock for Norway’s central bank.
The Oslo Stock Exchange has been housed in the same building since 1828, when it was designated as Norway’s first monumental building.
Over the years, Oslo Børs has partnered with exchanges in numerous different European countries, including a trading system partnership with the London Stock Exchange. The Oslo Stock Exchange became privatised in 2001, and it is now wholly owned by a holding company called Oslo Børs VPS Holding ASA.
Oslo Børs rebranded as Euronext Oslo in June 2019 adding to Euronext’s stable of stock exchanges all over Europe. The exchange currently trades entirely on an electronic basis.
Two main indices track the performance of Euronext Oslo. The Oslo Børs All Share Index (OSEAX) is a weighted index that tracks all shares traded on the larger exchange.
Meanwhile the OBX Index (OBX) consists of the 25 largest stocks on Euronext Oslo as measured by liquidity. Equinor, a Norwegian state-owned multinational energy company, is the largest stock on Euronext Oslo as a whole and makes up more than one-sixth of the OBX Index’s weighting by itself.
Euronext Oslo lists a total of 253 stocks. It is a highly diversified group of equities, with representatives from major sectors such as finance, retail, technology, materials, energy, and numerous others.
The exchange’s number of listings has swelled in recent years, with 91 companies joining the exchange in the past four years. That total of 253 listings is Euronext Oslo’s highest number of listings since 2008, before the fallout from the global financial crisis fully took hold.
As of 2019, Euronext Oslo owned a market cap of around $267 billion USD, making it the 28th-largest stock exchange in the world (sandwiched between the market caps of the flagship stock exchanges in Mexico and the Philippines).
