Wassum branches out into Finnish market

FINLAND – Swedish investment consultancy Wassum is to open an office in Helsinki in June headed up by Kjell Sundström, formerly of SEB and ABB.

The group says certain operations in the Finnish market will start earlier from its Stockholm office though.
Jan Waage, chairman of the board at Wassum in Stockholm, comments: “Finland is an interesting market. There is a lot going on there and it is also a euro-market.
“ It will be very interesting to see how it develops.”

Waage says Wassum will offer a similar range of products in Finland to those it already markets in Norway and Sweden, including manager monitoring and investment strategy planning.

He adds that Wassum believes in being ‘local’ in the market and will hire accordingly.
“We want to be local where ever we are, that is why we are opening an office in Helsinki and employing the people from there.”
