Victor Fagerlund, Senior Legal Counsel 

“I wanted to work for Finnfund because they offered me an opportunity to work on projects in a team during the whole life span of the project, instead of working intensely on projects for a short time like at a lawyer’s office. Finnfund is a unique employer in Finland: you have the chance to work on many different transactions all over the world.”
