Ownership steering by the State

The State owns several Finnish companies. Ownership steering refers to the responsible and professional management of the State’s shareholdings. The goal of ownership steering is to achieve a long-term increase in ownership value.

Ownership steering is based on the Limited Liability Companies Act and the principles of good governance. The Ownership Steering Department of the Prime Minister’s Office is responsible for developing and coordinating ownership steering activities across the Government.
