Bank of Finland The Bank of Finland acts as Finland's central bank, national monetary authority and member of the European System of central banks and the Eurosystem. It is the fourth oldest central bank in the world.The Eurosystem covers the European Central Bank and the euro area central banks. It administers the world's second largest currency, the euro. There are over 300 million people living in the euro area and from the beginning of 2008 the area covers 15 countries. Therefore, the Bank of Finland's strategies are related to both domestic and Eurosystem objectives.
The main objective of the Eurosystem and Bank of Finland alike is price stability, which means maintaining a moderate rise in consumer prices. Price stability creates the prerequisites for a sound economy. In order to meet this objective, the Bank of Finland participates in the preparation and decision-making process of the Eurosystem's monetary policy as well as implementing the policy in Finland. A broad research base provides a solid background to the Bank's expertise in these tasks.
In addition to monetary policy and research, the Bank of Finland has three other core functions:
  • financial markets and statistics, banking operations and the maintenance of currency supply
  • there are a little under 500 persons working at the Bank of Finland and
  • an additional 140 in association with it at the Financial Supervision Authority (FIN-FSA).
One of the aims of the Bank of Finland is to be an active participant in the Eurosystem. This participation is based on the high level of professional expertise of the economists and other experts employed by the Bank. One pillar of this expertise is research that places the Bank of Finland among the world’s leading central banks in selected key areas. Since the Bank's research should meet academic standards, they seek to publish their research reports in recognized international journals.

Tapiola Bank…

Tapiola Bank Tapiola Bank Ltd is a modern bank, serving the customers over the Internet, by phone or at offices throughout Finland. At the early stage the bank is offering services mainly to Tapiola’s private household customers. Corporations are served by the insurance companies of the Tapiola Group. Tapiola Bank is owned by the other companies of the Tapiola Group, thus also owned by the policyholders.As a new business division of Finland’s Tapiola Group, Tapiola Bank had very specific requirements for the archival storage of accounting and transaction records. Its archive strategy needed to comply with banking regulations while meeting internal operational and budget considerations.
Finland-based Internet bank Tapiola has since its foundation in 2002 been able to position itself as a highly competitive player in the Finnish banking market. Created as a supplementary service to parent company Tapiola Group’s customers, it has since become a success among financial service consumers in general. Through a strategy of low-cost, time-efficient services and the provision of a variety of channels for communicating with customers, the bank has been able to grow at an estimated 60% yearly. Tapiola Bank differentiates itself from competitors by operating outside the classic brick and mortar branch setting while still delivering face-to-face on-location service. The combination of low-cost online banking and on-demand personal advisory services is, according to Tapiola, an important reason for their success, as it offers customers the best of two worlds.
One key to the success of the Tapiola Group is Tapiola Data, the Bank’s internal IT division, which is responsible for the technology infrastructure needs of the company’s 3,000 employees and their customers. Using a combination of internal resources and outsourced services, Tapiola Data designed and implemented — and now supports — a storage strategy for the Tapiola Bank.
