Investment alternatives

You can choose the investment instruments from Nordea’s extensive selection based on your investment target, your risk tolerance and level of activity.

For example, you can select from Nordea’s funds and investment bonds, as well as from Nordea Life Assurance’s investment baskets, which you can only invest in through Nordea Life Assurance’s products. Investment baskets are not investment funds but investment instruments determined by the insurance company. They are subject to separate rules and the money invested in these baskets is reinvested in other investment instruments such as investment funds, equities, government bonds and corporate bonds. 

Granite Portfolios

The Granite Portfolios are suitable for you if you want our experts to select the investment instruments and manage your investment on your behalf, or if you are looking to invest in real estate as part of a widely diversified investment portfolio. 

You can choose the option that suits your preferred risk level from among three Granite Portfolios with different risk profiles.

  • Granite Portfolio 30 aims at achieving a moderate yield,
  • Granite Portfolio 50 aims at achieving a yield with an average risk, and
  • Granite Portfolio 75 aims at achieving a yield with a high risk.

Globe Baskets

The Globe Baskets are a comprehensive investment solution suitable for investors who wish to leave all investment decisions to the professionals and consider sustainability to be an important factor in saving and investment decisions.

Nordea’s Globe Baskets come with five different investment profiles, from which you can choose the alternative that best suits your investment targets and risk tolerance. Our portfolio management team will select the investments on your behalf and manage the baskets with the utmost professional skill.

Equity Baskets

Nordea’s Equity Baskets allow you to invest easily in the shares of major Finnish listed companies and to tap into their return potential. The Equity Baskets are suitable for you if:  

  • you are looking to invest in Finnish companies,
  • you track the performance of the Finnish equity market and are aware of the risks involved, and
  • you want to benefit from the performance of the selected Finnish companies.

You can choose from 14 companies listed on the Nasdaq OMX Helsinki exchange, which you can use to build your personal equity portfolio. Every Equity Basket added to your agreement will consist of the shares of one listed company, and the basket’s performance will track the total return on the share in question. The total return consists of the share price performance and the dividend yield.

Nordea funds

You will have access to our extensive selection of Nordea funds. You can choose one or several equity, fixed income or balanced funds and switch between funds depending on the market situation. 

Insurance Account

An Insurance Account is suitable for savers or investors who want to invest their savings with a low risk. It is particularly useful as a temporary place to park your money while searching for a new investment or waiting for market volatility to subside.

An Insurance Account is an investment alternative offered by Nordea Life Assurance, and its performance is tied to the interest offered by Nordea Bank on euro-denominated cheque accounts. The account interest rate is the 1-week Euribor less the margin, which is currently 0.4%. According to the currently valid tax legislation, no tax-at-source on interest income is levied on the return generated by savings held in an Insurance Account.

Investment bonds

You can add investment bonds selected by Nordea Life Assurance to your investment agreement during their subscription period. You can read about the investment bonds available at the time in Nordea Netbank.
