Practices

Financial Services, Fintech

As Counsel at Lexia, I serve our clients in the fields of financial regulation, as well as the Fintech practice.

Supporting business, taking advantage of regulatory opportunities and good governance are my guidelines when I help our clients with their legal affairs.

I have 15 years’ experience in the financial sector, most recently with Aktia Bank Group, both in legal affairs and business management. I have strong expertise in investment services, investment and alternative funds (UCITS and AIF), but I am also familiar with other areas of the financial industry. I have comprehensive expertise covering portfolio management, sales and marketing requirements, contractual issues, required procedures and policies, corporate organisation and administration, as well as cooperation with the FIN-FSA including licensing and registration processes.

I also have experience of cross-border operations of companies and products in the financial sector, and related agreements including fund distribution activities.

I have strong compliance competence and as part of our team, I provide continuous compliance services for our clients.

The regulation of listed companies and its implementation are also familiar to me.

I am used to bearing extensive responsibility for a company’s legal affairs as well as organisational operations. My years of experience working as a board member and as a secretary to the board, as well as my work in management teams, have taught me a business-oriented mindset.

I am happy to support you in Finnish, Swedish and English.
