Share savings programmes for company employees have existed in Norway since Freia launched their scheme in 1929. Today, almost 7 in 10 exchange-traded Norwegian companies have some form of share savings programs for their employees.

We in DNB Markets help many of the corporations in Norway that have share savings programs. We help employees with the practicalities of buying, selling and holding shares.

Your employer will always give you full details of your company’s offer and the terms and conditions that apply.

Are you an Equinor employee?

How can you sell your employee shares?

If you are a DNB customer and have access to the VPS account you have used for savings in our online equity trading service, you can sell your shares in the normal way. Watch our demo videos (below) to see how to do this. If you have another VPS account that cannot be accessed through DNB, you must first transfer the shares to the VPS account that is shown on our equity trading service before you can sell them. We explain this in the video below.

When you buy or sell shares, a brokerage fee is charged. You will also find our price list below.

To trade shares online, you must be a permanent resident of Norway with a Norwegian national identity number or temporary social security number (D-number).

Important information about the lock-in period

Shares with a lock-in period are not blocked. You are responsible for checking how many shares can be transferred without losing your bonus or other benefits.
