Investments

Financing investments

When you are planning to develop your farm and need financing for different kinds of investments, Nordea's experts will help you find the best solutions for your farm.

Our customers benefit from the experience of a strong European bank in agriculture in a country where farming developed more quickly than anywhere else.

Interest-subsidised loan

You can get an interest-subsidised loan for targets that meet the terms of agricultural investment subsidies. The interest falling on the customer is reasonably priced.

You will pay a fixed 1% interest for your interest-subsidised loan for as long as the interest subsidy granted for the loan is in force.

The level of the interest subsidy is 4% at maximum, so the interest you pay will only start to increase if the total interest rate (reference rate + margin) rises over the level of 5%.

Euro loan

is a loan tied to market rates which is suitable for financing most farm investments.

Hire-purchase and leasing

  • In Ohire-purchase, the machine you are acquiring serves as security for your financing, which means that you can use your farm's securities in other investments.
  • Leasing means that you pay lease payments for the use of a machine and after the agreement terminates, you return the machine to the financier.

In taxation, hire-purchase is comparable to a normal bank loan and in leasing, all costs are tax-deductible.

Protection against market risks

Market risks now as important as crop risks

Risks stemming from the fluctuation of market prices have increased considerably during the past few years and have become even greater than crop risks. As your farm's operations increase, so do the risks related to the price development of input and products. Interest and currency risks can play a major role for developing farms.

Nordea makes it easy to manage market risks. Contact us and our experts will help you find the most suitable solutions for your farm.
