“Many factors led to the high activity. First of all, there is a high level of interest in savings and investments at the moment, as a result of a positive stock market and the remarkable recovery after the corona crash in March last year. We also have the reporting season, and thus a constant news flow on the company side. On top of that, we have the spectacular battle between private savers and hedge funds in companies such as Gamestop, AMC, and Nokia“, says Johan Tidestad, Chief Communications Officer at Nordnet.
