Finnvera in brief
Finnvera is a specialised financing company owned by the State of Finland. Finnvera has official Export Credit Agency (ECA) status. We supplement the financial services offered by banks and other providers of financing.
We help Finnish enterprises to succeed and boost their competitiveness.
By granting financing, we can participate in projects seen as having the potential for success. We provide financing for the start, growth and internationalisation of enterprises and for protection against export risks. No good project or investment should fail for lack of financing.
Finnvera’s operations are steered by the relevant legislation, international agreements, and the industrial and ownership policy goals determined by the State of Finland. The funds needed for granting credits are obtained from the international financial market.
376 experts work in Finnvera. Women account for 63 per cent of the personnel, while men account for 37 per cent. 58 per cent have a Master’s degree. Employment relationships are fairly long, on average 17 years.
The competence and well-being of the personnel are of primary importance to Finnvera’s success. The company’s values – trust, partnership and a focus on solutions – are rooted in practices and guide the day-to-day work of Finnvera employees. Awareness of the company’s values and goals, and opportunities for participation and launching initiatives, support Finnvera employees’ dedication to the company.
Finnvera’s team succeeds when all Finnvera employees have the opportunity to be motivated and develop in their work.
