Every year, the work of our experts results in more than 200 reports, studies, and analyses. Most of them are published and available on our website.
Sometimes our work resonates and has a direct impact on the public agenda. At other times, it contributes more subtly to the making of superior decisions within a company, organisation, or courtroom.
The provision of market data is an increasingly debated topic both within the industry and among policymakers. In autumn 2018, Copenhagen Economics published the report “Pricing of market data”, commissioned by the Danish and Swedish Security Dealers Associations. In short, the report finds that market data costs are rapidly increasing and give rise to less transparent and efficient financial markets.
In spring 2019, Oxera published the report “The design of equity trading markets in Europe”, commissioned by the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE). The report addresses many of the same topics as the Copenhagen Economics report.
In this memo, we briefly provide our five main comments to the report from Oxera.

On average, a clinical trial improves the Swedish GDP by SEK 1m and the public budget by SEK 0,9m. The positive economic effects arise from trials conducted in Sweden through several drivers; by contributing to more and better healthcare, by creating highly productive jobs and by drug costs savings.
In this study, we were asked to quantify the value generated by clinical trials in Sweden to shed light on the benefits of conducting trials. We find, that on top of economic benefits, clinical trials further has a positive effect on competency development in the health care sector as well as on future research.

The Nordic industries that are most at risk of carbon leakage are aluminium and copper, basic iron and steel, and paper. Further, these industries have on average reduced energy intensity by 28% since 2008.
Carbon leakage is a situation in which a policy-induced reduction in CO2 emissions domestically is followed by increased emissions abroad, meaning that global CO2 emissions are not reduced but merely moved from one region to another. In this study, we assess the risk of carbon leakage in Nordic industries based on a number of indicators related to cost implications of policy-induced reductions and international competitive pressure.
