Do I need security for a corporate credit?

Security is usually required in the form of a guarantee or a pledge.


Finnvera, Garantia and the Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA) grant guarantees for corporate credits on certain conditions. The company's owners, a personal customer or another company can also provide a guarantee. Nordea can issue bank guarantee on your company's behalf for the benefit of a contractual partner.


 The following can be pledged as security:

  • shares in a housing company
  • real estate
  • business premises
  • business mortgage
  • deposit
  • shares.

 Object security

The financed object serves as the security in finance company products, such as leasing, hire purchase and Recourse Factoring.

Without security

Sometimes no security is required because the company's business operations are profitable or the credit amount does not require any.
