Experts on the Nordic marketplace

The Nordic region is often referred to as a single, homogeneous economy. Although Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Iceland share some socio-political and cultural similarities, each nation has a distinct marketplace. This is evident in economic structure and cycles, legal frameworks, and consumer behaviour.


We help you understand the differences

The Nordics include Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Iceland, whereas the geographical term Scandinavia relates to Sweden, Denmark and Norway exclusively.


The countries are all small, open, export-led, mixed economies. However, the composition of the underlying markets varies significantly, resulting in divergent economic performance and prospects. The population of the five countries is approximately 26 million.


To understand the differences between the countries within the Nordic marketplace, it is essential to identify the opportunities in each country, requiring strategies tailored to each market.
