The story of Samla Capital

Ever since his university days, triple Olympic champion and founder of Samla Capital Samppa Lajunen had a dream to start his own fund and management company.

Samppa gained experience by working in the banking sector, investing through his family business and saving capital until the time was right. In 2015, Samla Capital and its first fund, Samla Toimitilat Ky, were established. Today, Samla has 4 funds focused on real estate, over 370 investors and assets under management of around €155 million.

Professionalism was a trait that the triple Olympic champion had to learn at a very early age. Today, professional real estate investing is an integral part of Samla’s corporate culture, guiding our team towards common goals.

We know that success must be earned, every day anew. Excellence only comes from working together. Our growth has been driven by a sustained culture of working hard to exceed goals. These lessons are what made Olympic victories in sport possible. Now the same principles of work ethic have been applied to Samla Capital. Results have been in line with it. We want our customers investment assets to be well managed every single day, responsibly, by working together and with the knowledge that goals are made to be exceeded.

Policies

Working hard is part of the Samla way of life, and it’s one of the things that unites us Samlians. We know that hard work can make a big difference to the return on your property. Areas where real estate returns can be increased:

  • Purchases of real estate
  • Active renting
  • Property development
  • Marketing & branding
  • Active management with a clear face

We want our investment properties to be well managed every single day, responsibly, collaboratively and with the knowledge that goals are made to be exceeded.

Our operating philosophy

 

  • We capitalise well-being
    Our investments are very tangible, visible objects that support everyday life and work. We operate in areas that provide good returns for investors and, at the same time, a lot of good for society. Well-maintained properties bring well-being to their users. That’s why we say we capitalise on well-being.
  • Goals are made to be surpassed
    Our goals are set above average. For investors, we aim for good returns with moderate risk. For tenants, we strive to provide functional rental space that meets their needs. Returns are not made at the expense of security. For us, safety means the potential for future value growth and ensuring adequate diversification. Goals are surpassed only through hard work – and that is what we are used to doing. By doing more with more quality, tenacity and sustainability, we are able to improve our performance through various areas of doing business.
  • Together
    We have a team of real estate investment professionals, each with their own specific skills and responsibilities. Yet each has their own deputy, so it doesn’t come down to just one person. Excellence is therefore the result of working together. By working together, we achieve more. Together, we can spread investments across several sites and concentrate work in one organisation. We have the best experts and advisors at our disposal. Through our team, we have access to more knowledge, skills and experience than anyone could have on their own.
  • Passion
    We require the right attitude to do the work it takes to exceed our goals. Our ambition is focused on ensuring the wellbeing of property tenants, generating investor returns, challenging ourselves and continuously improving what we do. To do all this, we need the right attitude – we need passion.
