All in all, on the employee side we grew a whopping 30 percent during 2016 and more is to come! » Latest recruitments in the growing FA Team » Meet the newest team members at FA Solutions » Our Stockholm team has grown

Working in the FinTech industry is extremely interesting when you get to see and do new things. This year we worked with plenty of new innovations, such as...

» Launching a ledger-free network: Roboblock
» Automating Trading Processes with FA Solutions and Infront
» Combining Asset Management and Debt Management into a single platform for Kommuninvest
» Introducing functionalities known from everyday life but never seen in the financial industry

FA Platform
Our achievements were also noticed by local and international audiences, main topics being robo-advisory and new innovations in the FinTech scene. Here are the highlights of our press year 2016. » Finextra: "FA Solutions launches 'ledger-free' network for financial services firms" » Bobsguide: "Kommuninvest takes a leap with Financial Assets Management" » Kauppalehti: "Ruotsin julkisia varoja hallinnoidaan suomalaisella fintechillä" » Realtid: "Den personliga rådgivningens tid är förbi" » Privata Affärer: "Ökat intresse för robotrådgivning" » Kauppalehti: "Robottineuvojalla säästää helposti auton hinnan" » Wealth & Finance: "Investment Solutions for Asset Managers"
"The year 2016 was again a great year of growth. In one year, we were able to grow into six new countries and get new clients also in our Nordic home market. We did new releases for the FA Platform itself and also developed a variety of new extensions. We had a great pleasure to get into new partnerships where we see future growth potential in many markets. FA Solutions has been growing also by the new, talented employees, and this will continue in 2017. The turnover of the company grew close 50 % p.a. in 2016 and this is the third year now in a row with a similar growth rate. The company is profitable and has a solid financial situation and excellent ratings. The outlook for the fiscal year 2017 is very promising. "

A big thank you to everyone who was part of our journey in 2016.
We look forward working with you in the future and wish you all the best for 2017.
