The south wall of the stock exchange in Oslo

The Oslo Stock Exchange (Norwegian: Oslo Børs) serves as the main market for trading in the shares of Norwegian companies. It opens at 9:00am and closes 4:30pm local time (CET). In additional to a wide range of domestic companies, the OSE attracts a lot of international companies within petroleum, shipping and other related areas.

The stock exchanged opened in April 1819 (as Christiania Børs), but didn't list stocks and shares until 1 March 1881.[1] The first list of prices showed 23 shares.[1] From 1920 to 1936, whaling shares accounted for about 50% of total turnover.[2]

In addition to Norwegian and foreign companies with shares listed on Oslo Stock Exchange, the list also includes equity certificates issued by Norwegian savings banks.[3] The difference between shares and equity certificates is connected to the ownership of the company's assets and leverage in the administrative bodies of the banks.[4]
