IB Students at Swedbank

06.12.2016

On Friday 25th Audentes IB students visited Swedbank´s office in Liivalaia street. After a brief reception by the branch director students were divided in two groups to have a tour through the part of the bank that is open to the public. One group was guided by Markus who graduated from Audentes High-School some years ago, worked as teacher and somehow unexpectedly got the job at Swedbank, and the other group guide was Raili who used to be a chef, but in an opportunity she decided to change her career and work at Swedbank. While showing the different sections of the office they gave examples of different services and clients they have. Certainly an interesting point of the tour was the security vault in the ground floor with its huge iron door.

After the tour we went up to the 18th floor to the meeting room of the board. It has an amazing view of the city, and is naturally very well equipped for meetings. Here Markus and Raili made their presentation. After a brief history of the bank they explained the advantages of mobile banking. Then they encouraged students to start developing the habit of saving money, and become financially educated. There where interesting discussions about investments, pension possibilities, with also practical advices about loans. There was even a discussion about economic systems, but unfortunately time was over.
