Interim Report for the period January - September 2019
”After a good first half of 2019 we have now added a strong third quarter, in which our net operating profit was the highest ever for a single quarter. During this quarter, we continued our effort to provide sustainable products and services by launching Finland’s first bond fund to be granted the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. In addition, the Bank of Åland signed a cooperation agreement with ICA Bank, Söderberg & Partners and Ikano Bank to create a new joint mortgage company in Sweden. The Bank of Åland and our subsidiary Crosskey will supply the platform solution for the new mortgage company and contribute our existing knowledge about home mortgage loan management”
