Euro.NM, the fledgling European stock exchange, has shortlisted Euro RSCG Omnium, DMB&B Financial and Thoburn Associates to create a &£3m Europe-wide advertising campaign.
Omnium is the French financial services arm of Euro RSCG.
Euro.NM was set up as a joint venture three years ago by the main domestic stock exchanges in Brussels, Frankfurt, Paris, Amsterdam and Milan, with London expected to join shortly.
Eventually it would like to be pan-European and is looking to attract the other major European stock exchanges.
Euro.NM lists shares in small, innovative companies which it believes are key components of the European economy, but which find it difficult to raise capital.
This will be its first advertising campaign.
The campaign is intended to promote the stock exchange to institutional investors, venture capitalists and the businesses themselves.
The press and poster campaign will launch in Euro.NM’s constituent countries.
