Tapas & drinks – and a virtual tour on the trading floor

Nordea Markets organized a tapas & drinks event (with a VR twist) in Helsinki to meet and greet Future Finance Professionals.

The VR goggles were popular and the comments after seeing the trading floor in Copenhagen were just “wow”!

Nordea Markets organized a Tapas & Drinks event in Helsinki to meet and greet Future Finance Professionals. The FFP program is generated for motivated and ambitious students who are looking for a summer internship in Helsinki in the ever changing financial markets.

We were glad to see many happy faces during the event as we showed the students what the FFP program consists of and what kind of future opportunities an internship at Nordea Markets can offer them.

The students got to hear a presentation from our own Steen Grøndahl, Head of Investment Modelling & Solutions in Markets Sales, who told about his own career path at Nordea. We asked Steen what he thought about the event:

”Events like these are super important for Markets. The competition for talent is fierce, and so we have to be pro-active – and we are happy to see that our efforts are worthwhile, and we actually attract young talents. Events like this is a great opportunity for us to share our passion about why we have chosen to work in the financial markets and with Nordea. Having the possibility of letting the students “feel” the atmosphere at our Copenhagen trading floor, really was something extra”.

The students also got some valuable tips on applying for the programme from one of last year’s FFPs, Valtteri Mäkelä.

Virtual Reality

Jumping into virtual reality, equipped with VR goggles, the students also got an opportunity to experience Markets’ trading floor in Copenhagen – which is the biggest trading floor in Northern Europe. The VR goggles were a hit, and comments like, “this is where I want to work!” was heard many times during the evening.

You definitely tell who is the center of the event here… Everyone is focusing on the VR goggles.


Exceeding expectations

“This evening exceeded my expectations and I appreciated the proactive approach from Nordea Markets people towards us students”.

“The atmosphere was relaxed but at the same time informative. It was good to see so many Markets people and it was really easy to start a conversation with them. This event gave me a really good understanding of the FFP program and the requirements for it”.

Does the FFP program sound interesting?
