More information of our goals
Supporting people in managing and developing their personal finances is an important part of our operations. We facilitate personal financial management for people of all ages through various partnerships, webinars, training events and learning environments. The events were open for all and free of charge. We also continued close collaboration with educational institutions to promote the financial literacy of children and adolescents.
OmaOnni is a web-based learning environment for developing young people’s financial literacy. Numerous foundations that own Oma Savings Bank and providers of upper secondary education are involved.
pääOma is an e-learning environment for personal finance management in Sedu’s Moodle.

Yrityskylä is a learning environment on working life, the economy and society that is aimed at sixth- and ninth-graders. It operates nationwide and is based on the Finnish school curriculum.
We are committed to working for the well-being of Finnish society. We actively promote and develop the vitality of local and regional communities by offering jobs outside urban areas and by financing local private and SME customers.
We annually organise or are involved in local events aimed at enhancing local community spirit and well-being. In addition, our owner foundations and co-operatives distribute grants and subsidies for non-profit purposes every year. These purposes include, for example, economic education, research, children’s sports, youth work, culture and nature conservation.
It is important to us to promote the vitality of local communities in Finland and the success of entrepreneurs living outside urban centres, which is why we are the first bank in Finland to support, together with the European Investment Fund (EIF), micro-entrepreneurs and social enterprises. The objective is to help special groups establish and develop companies and business operations. These groups may include, for example, the unemployed or persons at risk of becoming unemployed or other individuals that struggle to find employment.
We are committed to promoting sustainable economic growth and productive employment. In addition to actively promoting local and regional vitality, we contribute to society through indirect economic impacts by, for example, paying taxes. These proceeds are used to safeguard the basic functions of society and build well-being. Furthermore, the salaries and social benefits paid to personnel have a positive effect on employees and on the surrounding communities. Our business is quided by our Code of Conduct.
