From Passive Aristocracy to Ethical Activity: Self-regulation in the Swedish Financial Market


  • Norberg, Peter

    () (Dept. of Business Administration, Stockholm School of Economics)


This article informs the question of how a business sector interacts with perceived demands from the public. Swedish financial firms suffer from low public confidence. The Swedish public has become increasingly involved in the equities market. Brokerage houses have al-ways appeared as exclusive. Using codes of ethics to effectively signal commitment to ethical principles serves both the objectives of seriousness and normality.
