Rules related to the stock exchange have the primary aim of ensuring that information which may affect the market's assessment of a security is provided in a proper and complete manner. Such information may be, for example, that a public bid will be made or that a major change has been made to someone's shareholding. Regulation is accomplished not only by means of legislation, but also through an agreement, e.g. the Stockholm Stock Exchange's registration contract.
