Senior Financial Analyst

Nefco is the Nordic Green Bank – the financial institution that provides only green financing.

Our purpose is to accelerate the green transition by financing environmentally sustainable small and medium-sized projects using Nordic solutions and technologies that have the potential to be scaled up on global markets and have a substantial positive environmental impact.

We serve the interests of our owners, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and work with concrete actions to accelerate the green transition. We use a wide spectre of financing instruments, from senior debt and mezzanine to equity and grants.

We take higher financial risks than commercial banks and provide financing earlier in the growth phase. Our involvement makes projects bankable and helps to mobilise other investors.

For more information about what we do, please see our strategy document:

Our work is based on three main values.

  1. We thrive together because we reach better solutions by working together across countries, teams and functions. We embrace the unique diversity of our competencies, backgrounds and strengths to become an organisation of empowered people.

  2. We strive to grow for good, as individuals and as an organisation, by challenging ourselves and others. We seek to inspire each other, our stakeholders and the world to follow our lead.

  3. To keep the focus on our purpose, we need to be ever-improving. We need to improve constantly, simplify complex situations, speed up slow areas, and add value to every interaction we have along the way.
