Organisation of the FFI and operating bodies
The Federation employs 75 people in diverse tasks related to the financial industry. The Federation's core function as a provider of successful lobbying is built upon an extensive network of operating bodies.
The Board of the Federation of Finnish Financial Services has appointed eight Executive Committees. The Executive Committees have their own spheres of authority on matters that do not influence the operations of other sector-specific Executive Committees or the Federation as a whole.
Representatives from Federation members comprise operating bodies, whose central function is to formulate the Federation's opinion on any pending lobbying issues. The operating bodies also manage certain other mutual matters.
The operating bodies are also a good source of information on the members' views on societal matters such as legislation and government policies. Influencing these requires active participation from the Federation.
