Meet our new colleague Oskari Vappula

We have a new colleague – welcome Oskari Vappula!

He joined the VALOR Investment Banking team as a trainee in December 2023. Before joining VALOR, Oskari worked as a management consultant and as a research assistant at Aalto University. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Finance from the Aalto University School of Economics.

We had the opportunity to interview Oskari and ask him a few questions.

As you have been a part of the VALOR investment banking team for a month now, can you tell me what the most interesting part of your job is?

Certainly! The most interesting part of my job is that I get to step out of my comfort zone daily, which complements my studies perfectly and allows me to develop my skills even in such a short period.

In your opinion, what is VALOR’s top competitive advantage?

In my opinion, VALOR’s top competitive advantage is its collective entrepreneurial mindset, which has been apparent since my first day at the office.

Wishing you a happy new year! How do you feel about the new year, and did you make any New Year’s resolutions?

Thank you! After a relaxing break, I am excited to challenge myself again back at the office. As for New Year’s resolutions, I decided to revisit an old resolution and run a marathon with a close friend.
