Don’t let money break you

Money relates to everything – it can encourage or restrict, resolve or break. Money helps to build. And break. Too many people never get to live their dream because they are too busy showing off they already do. We help every year more than 100,000 young people with their financial skills.

Are you the master of your finances?

For some of us, money is a constant concern, while others are masters of their finances.

As we want you to have sufficient financial skills for managing your own finances, we will publish together with Olli Kärkkäinen, Private Economist, a crash course in financial skills on YouTube. 

We will also publish practical tips for improving your financial skills on social media under the hashtag #rahataito.

Cooperation with schools Opens new window

In line with our community engagement strategy, we want to promote financial literacy and entrepreneurship in Finland. Through cooperation with schools, we have an excellent opportunity to discuss these themes with children and young people and offer our expertise to educational institutions. The goal is to inspire and teach young people to manage their finances through workshops and games, for example, so that everyone would be put on an equal footing when it comes to succeeding in life. Nordea employees visit pre-schools, comprehensive schools, upper secondary institutions and universities across the country. We also organise financial skills themed school days called “Oman talouden eväät” at Nordea’s headquarters in Helsinki.
