A word from the Chairman of Aalto Finance Alumni

Dear Finance Alumnus,

For quite some time there has been discussions encircling organized Finance Alumni activities and a call for a network of likeminded professionals hailing from similar Finance background. Rightly it has been recognized that we Finance Alumni lack of an association that all graduates from top universities have. Therefore we have, finally one could say, taken the initiative to make concrete steps to meet your expectations of more tight-knit Alumni network.

The role of the Aalto Finance Alumni Association is to develop and maintain the highly talented and vibrant community of Aalto University’s (former Helsinki School of Economics) Finance Alumni and friends world over. At the time of writing this we have more than 800 members, who are all Finance graduates from Aalto University. We have several highly valued partners who support our alumni efforts and we continue to expand our partner base in future.

The main focus of this prospering association is to rekindle connections between old friends and help the Alumni to make new, valuable contacts. We believe that this is one of the most important initiatives in our sphere of influence: solidifying Alumni relations will strengthen the status of Finance as the leading university faculty in Finland and more importantly, creates a platform of reciprocal knowledge sharing for the top professionals in the Finance-related industries, all benefiting from a common background in Finance. Ultimately, we believe, an active alumni association will benefit us all.

Warmest thanks to our current partners for their support and we are open for new co-operation possibilities. Further, we encourage our members to continue being active in giving us feedback and ideas how to best build an association we all wish to have. The aim of the association is to create sustainable value to our members, our university and to broader society.

Kind regards,

Jaakko Eteläaho
