For the last 23 years Stig has worked as an equity analyst or a fund manager.
Stig’s love of the markets stretches back to the age of 15, when he bought his first share. He then started out as a financial analyst working in Norway in the early 90s.
Since then, he has gone to specialize in stock picking, and his key areas of expertise are the Scandinavian, Baltic and Polish markets. He excels in this field and was declared Norway’s best stock picker by Finansavisen, the leading Norwegian Financial Daily newspaper, for 2010/2011. 2011 also saw Stig launch Europe’s legal insider trading based mutual fund.
Stig has won the expert panel Børsspeilet in the business magazine Økonomisk Rapport eight years in a row. The panel consisted of various experts from the investment banking and asset management industry in Norway and the winner was selected based on the return of the shares recommended.
Keen to share his years of experience with others, Stig is also a financial columnist for Finansavisen. He writes a widely recognised full-page expert commentary every Monday, where he shares his thoughts on market trends and investment opportunities.
