Responsibility creates long-lasting value

Evli’s primary task is to offer investment and financial services that help private persons, companies and institutions to achieve their financial goals. To achieve this target over the long term, in addition to financial factors, Evli considers the responsibility of its operations, for example through its environmental and social impacts and through human and labor rights factors. Responsible operations enable us to create long-term value and to remain competitive and successful in the changing global operating environment.
