Accessibility statements for Evli’s digital services

On this page you can find general information about Evli’s accessibility in digital services, including the accessibility standards, accessibility statements and information regarding how to give feedback on accessibility.

Evli strives to continuously improve the client experience and comply with appropriate accessibility standards in all our digital services. Evli’s goal is that all our services are available equally, regardless of the device, special needs or situation of our clients.

Evli listens to client feedback and uses several accessibility management methods to ensure the accessibility of our digital services. The latest audits of Evli’s digital services by external specialists were performed in the latter half of 2020. We are continuously working on improving the accessibility of the issues discovered in the audit.

Accessibility standards

Evli aims to comply with the technical standards relevant to the current Finnish legislation (in Finnish), which includes:

  • Standard EN 301 549 specifically for mobile applications, and generally for web services
  • Recommendation WCAG 2.1 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), Level AA specifically for web services.

List of statements

You can find the statements for the following services that are identified by their web domain or application platform:

Evli Digital asset management service

There are some issues that currently reduce the accessibility of the Evli Digital asset management service. These include:

  • Keyboard navigation
    Some parts of the website cannot be accessed with a keyboard.
  • Screen reader use
    Screen reader users can’t access all parts of the service and lack navigational cues to help them navigate the service.
  • Difficult to see text
    Users may have trouble reading the text due to insufficient contrast between text and its background.

The known issues in the Evli Digital asset management service will be remediated during the first half of 2021.

Non-accessible content

Not part of the legislation’s scope

The website includes PDF files that have been published before September 23, 2018 which may not be accessible.

Unreasonable Burden

Evli website includes industry standard infographics and data visualizations which do not have an equivalent text-based alternative as appropriate alternative format does not exist. However, clients who are not able to perceive these graphics can review similar data in a table format or contact our Investor Service (Tel. +358 9 4766 9701; Mon-Fri 9.30 am. - 4.30 pm) to get help with data interpretation.

Current version of the My Evli online service

Our current My Evli online service was audited for accessibility in the later part of 2020. We are currently working on correcting the discovered accessibility issues that relate to the following themes:

  • Keyboard navigation
    Some parts of the website cannot be accessed with a keyboard.
  • Support for screen readers
    Screen reader users face navigation problems similar to keyboard users, but additionally may miss out information that is only presented visually.
  • Use of low contrast text and icons
    Users may find some text and icons difficult to read and perceive because of colour combinations used in the service.

The new client registration and client data update service is not fully accessible. We are currently working on this and the plan is to renew this section during 2021. The aim is to improve accessibility simultaneously with the renewal process.

Previous version of the My Evli online service

The previous version of the My Evli online service is not fully accessible. Functionalities on this site are being discontinued during 2021 and will be re-created in accessible format in the current version of the My Evli online service.
