Evli Bank has signed a co-operation agreement with professional golfer Kim Koivu. Koivu is one of the rising stars of European golf, having had a breakthrough year in 2018. After turning professional just twelve months ago, his first full season has been a success story with three tournament wins in the space of five months on the European Challenge Tour. These three wins have gained him a full exemption on the European Tour in 2019.
Kim Koivu’s heritage to Finland and the development of Evli’s wealth management business as well as the company’s strong values, give a good starting point for the partnership. Maunu Lehtimäki, Evli Bank’s CEO comments: “Kim’s excellent achievements and devotion to become a world class player as well as his humbleness are exactly what Evli looks for in the players we sponsor. The co-operation agreement helps Evli to broaden its brand awareness as well as to market Finnish know-how and competence abroad. We eagerly look forward to being part of Kim’s success story and believe that this will be a fruitful co-operation for both parties.”
Kim Koivu is also delighted to be announcing the new partnership and adds: “I’m really pleased about the partnership with Evli and really appreciate their support. It’s been an amazing first year for me as a pro and I hope I can build on that in 2019.”
