Quick help from Omasairaala
The Omasairaala hospital based in Pikku Huopalahti, Helsinki, delivers on its promise. This is what Olli Rimpiläinen thinks, a man who broke his collarbone on a downhill slope.
- I have suffered all kinds of minor injuries when snowboarding. Compared with my previous experience of hospitals, the service provided by Omasairaala is faster and smoother. Everything here goes as scheduled and I have not even once had to sit and wait for treatments, says he.
Olli was injured during the last day of his downhill vacation in Italy. Immediately after the trip, Olli called Pohjola which recommended Omasairaala specialising in orthopaedic illnesses and injuries. He could make an appointment with a doctor for Tuesday and was already on an operating table on Wednesday.
Fund saving, a way to support the protection of small rivers and lakes
OP-Clean Water Fund is an equity fund that invests funds globally in companies offering products and services in the water sector.
"Scarcity of clean water and the challenges of water distribution are cause for concern, but they also create business opportunities. This is why the fund appeals to savers and investors alike, with its nature preservation theme and also financially," explains Samuli Sipilä, Managing Director of OP Fund Management Company.
In the spring of 2013, we introduced a philanthropic share class alongside the accumulation and distribution units, enabling OP-Pohjola Group and the unitholders to jointly help protect water resources. Investors in mutual funds have welcomed this warmly, and by the end of 2013, more than EUR 200,000 had been invested in the philanthropic units.
