Nasdaq Baltic

Nasdaq stock exchanges in Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius form the Baltic Market, the core idea of which is to minimize to the extent possible the differences between the three Baltic markets in order to facilitate cross-border trading and attract more investments to the region. This includes sharing the same trading system and harmonizing rules and market practices, all with the aim of reducing the costs of cross-border trading in the Baltic region.

Baltic exchanges belong to Nasdaq, the world’s largest exchange company. Nasdaq delivers trading, exchange technology and public company services across six continents, with over 3,500 listed companies.
