The C25 index in Denmark rose 0.5%, while the Swedish S30 index fell 0.1%. Stocks on the Nordic growth exchanges have underperformed both the Thomson Reuters Venture Capital Index and the C25 and S30 indices over the past year, with only the C25 and S30 indices delivering positive returns over the past year.

The Nordic growth markets are broadly diversified, and even though the growth markets have underperformed at index level over a long period of time, there have been large returns to be found in individual stocks and stockpicking. On the Kapital Partners website, we regularly write about possible investment cases with potential capital gains.
