The State Treasury is an agency operating under the Ministry of Finance (VM). We are in charge of government borrowing, the investment of cash assets and government debt risk management.
“We handle matters seamlessly, swiftly and transparently.”
We manage accident compensation payments to government employees, disburse compensation payments to citizens for military injuries and criminal damage, for example, and administer loans, interest subsidies and parliamentary loan guarantees granted from government funds. Our tasks also include government group accounts and the management of financial administration and payment transactions. We also support central government organisations in the transformation of work, promote knowledge-based management and develop the collection of financial data for municipalities. We serve central government, citizens, the municipal sector, communities and companies. The agency was founded in 1876. It employs approximately 300 people. Our offices are located in Hakaniemi in Helsinki at Sörnäisten rantatie 13.
