Forensic Risk Alliance (FRA) has announced the opening of its new office in Helsinki and appointed two Finns as directors.

Specialising in forensic accounting data analytics, risk management and e-discovery, consulting company FRA is expanding to Finland to strengthen its Nordic presence. The announcement marks the company’s first push to the Nordic market, with its other European offices being located in London, Paris and Zürich.

Along with the new office opening, FRA has also announced the director appointment of two Finns: Tytti Saarinen and Viivi Lajunen.

These appointments will assist us to strengthen our footprint in the Nordics, where we already have a strong track record with key law firms and corporate clients,says Derek Patterson, principal and head of the Nordic Region at FRA.

Lajunen and Saarinen both see demand for the company’s services, especially in the Nordics, as a growing trend in an internationalising world.

In our opinion, many Nordic organisations still rely heavily on trust, which exposes companies to misbehaviour, particularly outside of the Nordic region,” both agree.
