This issue of the Nordic Journal of Business includes three peer-reviewed articles and a research note.
In the first article, Antti Talonen (University of Helsinki), W. Jean Kwon (St. John’s University), Jukka Mähönen (University of Oslo) and Päivikki Kuoppakangas (Tampere University) examine how the managers of mutual insurance companies understand and communicate the influence of customer ownership when organizing operative activities. The second article by Olga Iermolenko (Nord University) discusses the role of care as an integral part of management control systems in large-scale construction projects. In the third article, Nikolas Breitkopf (Aalto University), Samuli Knüpfer (BI Norwegian Business School) and Elias Rantapuska (Aalto University) provide a descriptive analysis of the ownership patterns of stocks and mutual funds in the entire Finnish population.
In addition to the three articles, this issue includes a research note by Agnieszka Jach (Hanken School of Economics) in which a high-frequency analysis of stock market activity, liquidity, and volatility during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic is presented.
I hope you enjoy reading the contributions featured in this issue of the Nordic Journal of Business.
