Tanker giant Euronav may be forced to address its Belgian domicile and Brussels Euronext listing as it tries to boost its share price.

Following talks with the VLCC and suezmax owner's management, Clarksons Platou Securities said these two factors mean the company is missing out on access to US-weighted index funds that draw in more investors.

Also listed in New York, Euronav shares trade at a 15% discount to net asset value (NAV). That is one of the biggest discounts among its peers, even though the company has the largest market capitalisation and a strong balance sheet, the Norwegian investment bank said.
