Shares are suitable as part of a diversified portfolio, in which the investment is distributed over a number of assets, minimising the investment's risk. Investing in shares requires you to keep track of the companies that have issued the shares, as well as of the general market conditions.

If you want to trade in shares, you must be willing to follow up companies and the market, as strong fluctuation in prices is typical of shares. Netbank trading services provide you topical information in a convenient manner.

How to get started

Our investment services for businesses are available to limited liability companies, limited partnerships, general partnerships, registered associations and housing companies. Private traders make their investments as personal customers.

To trade in any listed instruments, a company must open a book-entry account in its name. If the information on your company’s line of business in the Finnish Trade Register does not include investment operations, your company’s representative must deliver us the signed minutes of the board meeting in which the decision to open a book-entry account was made. Depending on your company’s signature rules and company form, we may also need the minutes of the board meeting in which the decision to open a fund portfolio was made (note that these minutes are always required from registered associations and housing companies). 

You can send us the minutes via Nordea Omaposti. To trade in listed instruments, your company also needs a valid Legal Entity Identifier (LEI). Read more about LEIOpens new window. After your company has acquired the LEI, call Nordea Business Centre (0200 26262Opens new window, local rates apply) to open the book-entry account.

To open a fund portfolio required for investing in fund units, call Nordea Business Centre on 0200 26262Opens new window (local rates apply).



You can invest in shares

  1. by buying the shares of a company directly on the stock exchange or
  2. indirectly by investing in equity and balanced funds or in investment bonds.

In addition, you can invest in equities by subscribing for shares in share issues or share sales where the present owners of the company sell part of their holdings to new investors.

The shares are in the form of book-entries and you will need a book-entry account  for them. The book-entry account will be opened in the bank. After your trades have been completed you will receive a calculation to help you to settle capital gains or losses in taxation.

In order to be able to trade, you will need the Investor's service in addition to the book-entry account. With the service you can submit buy and sell orders and monitor their status and the value of your investments.
