“Nordnet’s vision is to become the leading bank in the Nordic region for savings and investments, this is a proof of our determination. I strongly believe in the potential of the Finnish savings market and through the acquisition we considerably strengthen Nordnet’s position in this growing market, as well as in the Nordics. eQ has strong offer, good growth and highly skilled personnel. I believe that we through the acquisition over time can reach sizable synergies and further refine the high competence of the eQ personnel”, says Nordnet CEO Carl-Viggo Östlund.

eQ, the largest online-broker in Finland, has about 57 000 customer and the group specializes in investment services through three business areas; Securities Brokerage, Asset Management and Corporate Finance.
