March 1999, Sweden was the first country in Europe to get a local language website with Morningstar tools. Morningstar in Denmark, Finland and Norway opened as a joint venture in 2000, the next year followed by a similar arrangement in Sweden. In larger European countries Morningstar started wholly-owned subsidiaries and later the Nordic joint ventures were included. This process ended in May 2013 when Citygate sold its 70% share in Morningstar Sweden.
Morningstar’s local language investing websites in the Nordic offers access to and objective information on over 10.000 mutual funds registered for sale to individual investors in each country. The site also offers independent editorial content produced by Morningstar analysts based locally and around the world.
In addition to its investing site, Morningstar provides a range of innovative products and services to advisers and institutions, including Morningstar Direct, a global institutional investment analysis platform.
