    Goals: The purpose of this study was to find out how to ethically sensitively persons working in the financial business self-evaluate themselves. The study also wanted to find out if there are any differences between men and women in their ethical sensitivity. The theoretical background for the thesis is about four moral components by James Rest, Muriel Bebeau and Darcia Narvaez (1999), of which an ethical sensitivity was studied in this work in more detail. Methods: The study was conducted by quantitative research method, and the data were collected in August 2015 from a metropolitan area banking group. Offices located in Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen. The responses were collected through a e-form, which was answered by 183 people. 77.6% of respondents were women (N = 142) and men 22.4% (N = 41). Ethical sensitivity was measured by ESSQ - meter (Tirri, Nokelainen 2007, 2011), which consisted of 28 statements, which were answered by a 5-point Likert scale (1 = strongly disagree ... 5 = strongly agree). From these 28 ESSQ - meter statements were formed by seven different factors, whose reliability was measured by Cronbach's alpha. The averages of the results were examined with the T-test. Results and conclusions: Bank employees have been assessed by the highest ethical sensitivity areas ESSQ_2 and ESSQ_3, those averages are ESSQ_2 = 4.2199 and ESSQ_3 = 4.1680. The lowest average received ESSQ_7 = 3.4781. Between the sexes, there was in the average differences, but they did not differ from each other statistically significant, as only in the two areas. Generally speaking the ethical sensitivity of the financial business could be slightly higher, although the results are not very disturbing.
