Evli Bank, which specialises in investments, started co-operation with the National Opera and Ballet at the beginning of 2018. The values shared by the two include the highest level of professionalism, as well as premium quality, Finnish origin, and strong international networks. Extraordinary experiences that can be offered to Evli’s customers, personnel and other stakeholders are central to this partnership. At the same time, Evli is proud to support Finnish culture, creativity and expertise.
“Our brands are a great match. Evli and the National Opera and Ballet are both about extreme precision and high quality services. These, combined with passion, result in unique customer experiences”, says Evli Bank’s Managing Director Maunu Lehtimäki.
During the past few years, the National Opera and Ballet has taken determined steps to develop its partnership activities. Recent openings have included cooperation with Finnair on the FNOB’s tour of Japan in spring 2017 as well as the partnership with Kalevala Jewellery in connection with Land of Kalevala in autumn 2017.
“It’s great to have Evli join our family. We share a passion to strengthen and maintain Finnish expertise and offer unforgettable experiences to customers. The opera house is full of professionals representing a wide range of fields and it’s great to have Evli sponsor opera and ballet art,” says Gita Kadambi, General Director of the Finnish National Opera and Ballet.
The Finnish National Opera and Ballet is supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture as well as by the Cities of Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen. Its main partners are the Varma Mutual Pension Insurance Company and the Helsingin Sanomat daily.
