Corporate finance – here’s how to fund your business

There are as many individual corporate finance needs as there are companies. Nordea offers you a wide range of corporate finance options regardless of the sector or the stage in the life cycle of your business. On this page, you will find more information about the finance options we offer to different types of companies.

We help you find the financing for any stage in the life cycle of your business

The stage of your business is a key factor in determining the right corporate finance option for you. Founding a company often requires a large initial investment. This is why the founders of new businesses often turn to external financial institutions, such as banks. Companies may also need financing to constantly grow their businesses or, for instance, to acquire new equipment or build their IT infrastructure. 

We will help you find the right finance option that meets your company’s specific needs. Our finance options include corporate loans, leasing and crowdfunding. 

We are here to guide you towards the right solution

Navigating your corporate finance options may sometimes seem complicated. With the abundance of different options and financial institutions, it may take a great deal of time and energy to find the right fit for your business. It can be difficult to know which finance option is best suited to your company’s current situation, especially in the early stages of your business. 

In addition, the corporate finance market is very competitive, which is why it has attracted a number of operators that may charge very different prices for their services. What may make decision-making even harder is having to choose from various financial institutions and forms of finance. Our guides help you navigate a wide range of corporate finance options and find the right fit for you.
