Aktia in Brief
Aktia offers a broad range of solutions in banking, asset management and life insurance. Aktia operates mainly in coastal areas, the Helsinki region and inland growth areas.
The bank's roots date back to 1825, when Finland's oldest surviving deposit bank saw the light of day. The modern Aktia was born in 1991 with the merger of eight savings banks.
During the 1990s Aktia grew by opening new branches in strategic areas and by acquisitions. The bank also offered new services, such as asset management and internet banking. In the 2000s Aktia continued to provide more comprehensive products and services by expanded card offerings, real estate services, insurance and corporate finance solutions.
Aktia has approximately 310,000 customers who are served at over 30 branch offices and via comprehensive internet and telephone services.
According to the strategy update, extending to 2023, Aktia is seeking an even stronger growth in asset management and new customers in the growing cities in Finland, and continues to further intensify its operations. The aim of the strategy is to support Aktia's growth targets and to lead the company towards the new vision of being "The good bank. And a great asset manager".
Aktia is owned by Finnish Aktia foundations, savings bank foundations, institutions, companies and private individuals.
