Year 2017 at FA Solutions exceeded growth targets

FA events
Throughout the year we organised a bunch of interesting Breakfast Seminars and took part in several events around the world. We will also remember 2017 as the year when we held the very first FA User Summit, which was a huge success. We were happy to see everyone who joined us and are looking forward to see you again in our next events!

FA events
Yet another successful breakfast seminar in Stockholm! The agenda included discussion, demonstration and case stories on how Asset Managers & Private Bankers can nurture customer relationships with modern technologies and smartly automate customer engagement activities.
FA Platform
Our product development team has been working hard to develop our FA Platform even further. In the beginning of the year, our product was facing a comprehensive security testing conducted by a third party and FA Platform survived that test excellently. FA 2.5 was released in June with a variety of new functionalities in investment analytics, private equity and user authentication, and after that we have also launched a totally new user interface for Front Office users: FA Front. The new tool was introduced to our customers for the first time in the FA User Summit

The picture above is a sneak peek to the new user interface FA Front. Stay tuned for more!

FA team
This year has probably been the year of the most rapid team growth in the history of the company as we have welcomed 12 new employees in the Helsinki and Stockholm offices – and will welcome even more new colleagues in the beginning of 2018. We are close being a team of 50 professionals looking forward to meet all the new colleagues and friends that the year 2018 is going to bring us.

The picture above was taken in Nice, France where the FA team visited in September. We had a sprint of two days for small teams to develop an idea as far as possible, and the winning team is posing in the picture while others are applauding them.

“2017 has been once again a year of great growth. I am grateful to see how the FA Team has united and committed into solving challenges of a growth company together as a team and look forward to see this continuing in the upcoming years too, especially as there are new colleagues joining us.

Year 2018 looks very promising as we will continue to grow in many ways. Our focus is in strengthening our position in the Nordics but also seeking for growth in the newer areas such as Gulf Region and Luxembourg. We are looking into partnerships that could help us out speeding up this process, and establishing local presence in selected markets is also a possibility. We are also forming more partnerships to distribute our product globally.

I wish everyone Happy Holiday Season! I also want to thank each and everyone of you for your contribution to the success of the company. I am very proud of the company and I am especially proud of the Team FA.”

Juha Lehtonen
CEO, FA Solutions
