Working at
Voima Gold

Voima Gold is an innovative fintech company offering account services for global clients. We have over a thousand clients from over 30 countries around the world. In the last couple of years we have built our own web- and mobile applications as well as our own vault in Helsinki, Finland. Last year, our revenue was 19.2 million euros. Currently, we hire 19 full-time employees and our company is constantly growing. Our office is in the heart of Helsinki. The Voima Account was created to counter the unfairness of the banking system. Regular banks do not safeguard people’s money in a safe manner. In case the bank fails to balance their operations, the clients face the consequences and lose their savings. This has happened already in Cyprus, and the instability of the financial world makes bank collapses likely to happen elsewhere as well. On top of this, creating more and more money in the recent years has led to euros and other currencies losing their value. On the other hand economics and history have shown that gold retains its value. Gold copes better with crisis and economic downturns.The people who have owned physical gold have retained the value of their money and purchasing power, unlike people who have only stored the majority of their money in a bank as digital numbers. This is why we offer accounts with physical gold holdings. We believe it is fair, that our clients get to keep the value of their money and purchasing power now and for generations to come.
