Foreign investors now own 39.3 per cent of the shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange. This is the highest level since the financial crisis in 2008.

The proportion of shares in foreign hands has increased steadily over the last ten years, according to the Oslo Stock Exchange.

At the same time, the state’s stake in the stock exchange has fallen to the lowest level since the financial crisis.

This is because the state’s heaviest item has been Equinor, and Equinor and other oil-related stocks have performed weaker than other sectors on the stock exchange.
