FIN-FSA appoints authorised representative to supervise the activities of Elo Mutual Pension Insurance Company


The Financial Supervisory Authority (FIN-FSA) has appointed an authorised representative to supervise the activities of Elo Mutual Pension Insurance Company as of 14 December 2020. The attorney appointed is Pekka Jaatinen, Attorney-at-Law.

In accordance with section 29 of the Act on the Financial Supervisory Authority (878/2008), the Financial Supervisory Authority may appoint an authorised representative to supervise the activities of an authorised supervised entity for example if there is evidence of incompetence or carelessness in the management of its affairs.

The FIN-FSA’s decision does not require any actions by the company's customers, and the decision does not affect the insurance cover provided by the company. The FIN-FSA will reassess the necessity of an authorised representative at the latest in June 2021.

This decision has not yet become legally binding. The company has the right to appeal the decision issued on 11 December 2020 to the Administrative Court within 30 days of the date of service of the decision.
