The CEO’s Review
Esa Kallio, the President and CEO of MuniFin, discussed the development of the company in 2023, stating that it was the fourth consecutive year marked by instability. The increasing geopolitical tensions and market fluctuations did not significantly affect the operational capacity of MuniFin. MuniFin was able to, without disruption, fulfill its core mission of securing cost-effective long-term financing for its customers. Regarding the long-term financing of wellbeing services counties, the CEO emphasized that this is constrained by the annual limit of EUR 400 million set by the Municipal Guarantee Board, because wellbeing services counties are not members of the Municipal Guarantee Board. From the perspective of the development of public sector financing costs, it would be important for wellbeing services counties to become members of the Municipal Guarantee Board and thereby share the guarantee responsibility for the funding used in wellbeing services counties. Finally, for 2024, the CEO also stated that MuniFin has decided to terminate the business operations related to the advisory services provided by its subsidiary Rahoituksen neuvontapalvelut Inspira Oy, as the related business acquisition with FCG Finnish Consulting Group Oy fell through.

Election and Remuneration of the Auditor
PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy was elected as the company’s auditor with Jukka Paunonen, Authorized Public Accountant, as the principal auditor. The auditor’s fees will be paid against the invoices approved by the company.

Constitutive Meeting of the Board
At its constitutive meeting, the Board appointed Kari Laukkanen as the Chair and Maaria Eriksson as the Vice Chair of the Board. The following persons were appointed to the Remuneration Committee: Kari Laukkanen as the Chair, and Leena Vainiomäki and Maaria Eriksson as members. The following persons were appointed to the Audit Committee: Markku Koponen as the Chair, and Tuomo Mäkinen, Elina Stråhlman and Denis Strandell as members. The following persons were appointed to the Risk Committee: Leena Vainiomäki as the Chair, and Maaria Eriksson, Kari Laukkanen and Arto Vuojolainen as members.

Additional information on the company’s operations in 2023 is available in the company’s Annual Report, which is available for downloading in PDF format at the company website
