Per Österström, CEO, Sambla Group comments:
“I am impressed by Omalaina’s and Salus Group’s respective journeys and look forward to working together with both teams of management and employees. I’m excited to continue the journey towards becoming the leading comparison platform for loans and mortgages in the Nordics and to help more customers improve their private finances, now also together with Omalaina and Salus Group.”
Sambla Group consists of Sambla, Advisa and Rahalaitos, and is one of the Nordic region’s leading players in comparison sites for personal finance.
Jarkko Forsberg, CEO, LVS Brokers comments:
“As co-founder and CEO I am proud of, and impressed by, the journey that OmaLaina has made, driving the development of the industry of loan intermediation in Finland and helping more customers make better decisions in regards to their private finances. I am looking forward to continuing working with the team and management, and to become a part of Sambla Group to reach the next step together.”
