Dedicated contact person

Paula, Corporate Banking Adviser, tells us about her job:

Hi, I am a Corporate Banking Adviser, and in my job, I meet customers every day.

Like many other specialists working in the service sector, I always make an appointment for a customer to come and see me.

Some appointments are made on the customer's initiative and in some cases, I am first in contact with the customer. I ask how they are doing and make sure that all their banking is running smoothly. Sometimes I notice a need or a new opportunity which makes me contact the customer.

Generally, I try to meet my customers at least once a year. I see some of my customers more often if necessary. Meetings usually take place at our branch, but if customers wish, I am happy to visit them on their premises as well.

If I was asked what I enjoy most in my job, I would have to say my customers!
 
I enjoy meeting different kinds of people and, together with them, plan them the best overall solution - both for the company and the individual.

Paula talks to us about services for companies

When I meet a customer, we go through all of his or her company's banking: payments, accounts, financing, investments and insurance. We talk about what they want and need. I also take the opportunity to tell them what Nordea has to offer.

I think that it is my job to tell them about all our services and customers then decide which services are suitable for them.

In addition, I check that they do not have any services they do not need or are not using. This way they avoid unnecessary service charges.

In more demanding cases, I have the support of the entire Nordea specialist network at my disposal.

Paula also attends to the entrepreneur's personal banking

As a Corporate Banking Adviser, I also take care of the personal banking of entrepreneurs and their families.

This has proved to be an excellent solution because all the customer's banking is being attended to by one person and the customer does not need to tell his story over and over again to different bank employees.

That is a definite benefit both for us at the bank and for the customer because we all get to know each other better.
