Together through time

Congratulations OP 120 years!

OP has been owned by its customers since its foundation in 1902

Osuuskassojen keskuslainarahasto Osakeyhtiö (Central Lending Fund of the Cooperative Societies Limited Company) was founded on 14 May 1902. Cooperative credit societies offered loans to the rural poor, who had lacked access to banking services.

The societies were a key provider of financing and education for Finland’s largest demographic group, enabling wellbeing and growth. This means that OP Financial Group has been building Finnish society for more than 120 years.

Mission has remained unchanged through the decades

In 2022, OP Financial Group’s mission is to promote the sustainable prosperity, security and wellbeing of its owner-customers and operating region. The Group has more than two million owner-customers.
