Why invest in the Nordic?
The Nordic region consists of Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland, but most investors leave out Iceland due to its smaller size. These countries share a common strategy for combining socialism with capitalism in the form of higher taxes, comprehensive social nets, and a competitive market economy. In the past, this system has been tremendously successful at generating both financial returns and a high quality of life.
A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE NORDIC MODEL
The Nordic Region as such comprises the 12th largest economy in the world, with a population that is growing faster than the EU average, a labour market that receives global praise and a welfare system that has proved resilient both in times of boom and bust.
It is an area spanning from the endless acres of farmland in Denmark and the vast forests in Sweden, over the thousand lakes of Finland and the mythical fjords of Norway to the Arctic splendour of Iceland and Greenland. Indeed, even the island communities of the Faroe Islands and Åland have their own characteristics, both when it comes to nature and culture, economy and population. The Nordics often are at the top of the list when the UN or other international bodies rank nations on various parameters. The region is also rated amongst the most suited to fulfil the aim of the 2030 Agenda to reach the UN sustainable development goals.
