Nordea Investment Funds S.A - http://www.nordea.com/
 

Nordea is the largest financial services group in Northern Europe with a market capitalisation of approximately EUR 28bn, total assets of EUR 694bn and a core tier 1 capital ratio of 11.6%.  Nordea has leading positions within corporate merchant banking as well as retail banking and private banking. It is also the leading provider of life and pensions products in the Nordic countries.


With approximately 1400 branches, call centres in all Nordic countries and a highly competitive e-bank, Nordea has the largest distribution network in the Nordic and Baltic Sea region.  Nordea has the largest customer base of any financial services group in the Nordic region with approximately 11 million customers including new European markets, those of which 9.5 million are household customers in customer programme and 0.5 million are corporate customers.


Nordea’s vision is to be a Great European bank, acknowledged for its people, creating superior value for its customers and shareholders.  Nordea operates in 9 home markets including Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and the New European Markets of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Russia. Nordea has a market position of number one or two in most Nordic markets in both retail and wholesale banking.


Nordea’s family tree includes some 300 banks founded from the 1820s onwards. Through mergers the number decreased to 80 banks in the 1970s and 30 banks in the 1980s. In the 1990s there were four major banks left to form the new bank group:

  • Nordbanken in Sweden
  • Merita Bank in Finland
  • Unibank in Denmark
  • Christiania Bank og Kreditkasse in Norway.

Financial Services in the Nordic and Baltic countries

These banks merged and all operations have been conducted under the brand name of Nordea since December 2001. A few years later Nordea’s operations in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Russia reached a significant size, making Nordea an important bank also in these countries.  The banks forming Nordea shared the vision of being the leading financial services group in the Nordic and Baltic countries.  Improved customer and employee satisfaction as well as shareholder value was created through significant structural changes and merger processes, continued business focus and growth in strategic areas.


Making it possible

Nordea was about creating new possibilities. The possibilities of providing better financial solutions – better for the customers, better than the competitors’, better than before the merger – and to do this at lower cost and higher quality. This ambition is captured in the Group’s mission statement: "Making it possible."

Nordic + ideas = Nordea

In the Nordic countries people are similar enough to be able to cooperate, different enough to benefit from learning from each other and numerous enough to provide an interesting home market. They share Nordic values such as freedom and equality, they care for the environment and follow the Nordic heritage of breaking new ground, Nordic + ideas = Nordea.


Nordea is listed on the NASDAQ OMX Nordic Exchange in Stockholm, Helsinki and Copenhagen.
