Tieto has signed a five year agreement with Skandiabanken ASA to provide funds and securities solutions. The agreement is an important business enabler to Skandiabanken ASA as an independent Norwegian bank and a step in strengthening both companies’ foothold in Norway.

With Tieto´s solutions the bank will be able to provide future-oriented funds and securities offerings to its customers while ensuring cost-efficient and secure operations. The new agreement also includes options for pension savings solutions and business process outsourcing.
