The consumer goods sector faces a rapidly changing landscape. In addition to operational challenges and climate change concerns, consumer goods companies must manage various stakeholders and consumer expectations.
Infrastructure & Utilities

The sector spans a wide range of sub-sectors, and often involves companies with long-term and stable cash flows. This attracts attention from a broad range of institutional investors, in many cases as part of an asset/liability matching strategy.

The telecommunications, media, and technology sector (TMT) in Norway has a history of fostering many leading-edge companies with extensive international operations.
