The Finnish Centre for Pensions seconded me to TELA as a mathematician for a six-month stint in 2019, but in the end my stay became permanent. I had spent 16 years as a mathematician at the Finnish Centre for Pensions, so it may well have been time for a new twist on the wonderful earnings-related pension sector. I have a Master of Arts Degree in actuarial and financial mathematics. In addition, I’ve passed the SHV examination (Actuary approved by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health).

The pension system is like the Barbapapas — cooperation and suitable transformations help to solve even the most difficult problems.

In my spare time:

I run and play badminton. I’m a sunny-weather golfer, an occasional orienteerer, a warm-water diver and a long-slope skier. I enjoy travel and good food. Family is the best <3
