In DNB you can buy unlisted Norwegian shares
The NOTC list gives you a summary of Norwegian unlisted shares which can be traded through individual brokerage houses. DNB Markets is one of the companies connected to the list. You can buy unlisted shares via our online equity trading service, but to change or delete an order you need to call our sales desk. Our brokers will then execute the trade for you with the seller’s broker, and the share will be placed in your portfolio.

How to buy unlisted shares
The unlisted market is not fully automated. You can place orders through the online equity trading service, but to make a change you need to call our sales desk on (+47) 915 08 940.
Trades can be closed manually over the telephone between brokers, and then registered by us in the NOTC system. When the trade is confirmed from the other broker, we register the trade as completed and you will see it in your portfolio summary online.
The manual order and trade flow means that you cannot expect a trade to be executed or registered on the NOTC list as soon as an order has been registered on the equity trading service. We aim to execute orders in the most efficient way possible but cannot guarantee that orders will be executed and reported within a given timeframe.
It is not possible to cancel or change an order online during the stock exchange day. If you want to change/cancel, call (+47) 915 08 940 and quote your order number.
NB: To place an order for unlisted shares that are not on the NOTC list, you need to call the sales desk on (+47) 915 08 940
What does NOTC stand for?
OTC stands for Over-The-Counter trades. This is a manual trade in shares that do not satisfy the criteria for being listed on a traditional stock exchange. The “N” stands for Norwegian.
In DNB Markets, you can buy unlisted Norwegian shares, but not US or European ones. Unlisted shares are defined as a “complex product” and in order to trade these, all customers need to answer a number of questions to show they understand the product. This is compulsory.
You need to take a test
Unlisted shares often carry a higher risk.
Before you can trade unlisted shares, you need to take a test. This is done under the ‘complex products’ tab on your profile.
