Market Sounding

The consent of the State Pension Fund of Finland must be secured for any market soundings. As a rule, such consent should be requested by e-mail, unless otherwise warranted by the circumstances. Under the Market Abuse Regulation, a market maker may not disclose to VER any information that could be construed as confidential or inside information without express consent and is otherwise required to comply with the obligations imposed on market makers by the Regulation.

At the State Pension Fund, market soundings are primarily received by CIO Jan Lundberg (Equity Investments) and CIO Mikko Räsänen (Fixed Income). Market soundings need to be made by e-mail ( unless the recipient specifically agrees to some other procedure.
