Enhanced Top Investors content for Norwegian Equities

Infront has signed an agreement with Euronext VPS in Norway in order to distribute premium shareholder content to customers using the Infront Professional Terminal. The enhanced solution includes daily updates with up to 5 years of historical data enabling our customers to stay on top of what investors are doing in the market.  A challenge in following top investors has been the tendency of investors to buy or sell just below market thresholds so that they do not show up in the exchange notifications.
