An expert in serving institutional clients

Award-winning portfolio managers provide professional asset management. Investments are diversified cost-efficiently in various investment instruments. We use empirically verified sources of additional return that improve the risk-adjusted return of the portfolio. We monitor your targets to ensure they are achieved in the best possible way in relation to the investment risks.

Together we plan how to increase your company’s or institution’s assets with your selected risk level. We use scenario analysis to evaluate the likelihood of your company or institution achieving its investment target with alternative investment strategies.

”ESG should be integrated into the daily work of every fund manager, analyst and person working at a company – not separated and outsourced to a small team”.

- Maunu Lehtimäki, CEO, Evli Bank
