Investing with ETFs: Finland & Denmark

There are few opportunities for investing in Finland and Denmark via ETFs, with only one listed ETF in Finland and none in Denmark

Seligson OMX Helsinki 25 Indeks is the only ETF that gives investors exposure to the Finnish market. The top sector exposures include industrials (26.7%), materials (16.9%) and financials (15.5%). The Finnish benchmark is comprised of internationally-known equities like Nokia (NOK1V) (9.6%), TeliaSonera (TLS1V) and Nordea Bank. The maximum weight of any one company is limited to 10%, which makes the index (and hence, the fund) well-diversified from the perspective of individual names.

Unfortunately for investors seeking to make a play on Denmark, there is no existing pure-play ETF option. To gain exposure to the Danish market, investors would have to invest in an ETF tracking a pan-Nordic benchmark.
