Together with, amongst others, the management of the company, the arranger and legal advisors to the arranger, Vinge has acted for Lendify in the structuring, documenting and execution of the transaction where one of the world’s largest and most well established asset managers, Insight Investment, acted as main investor.

Lendify has, with Vinge’s assistance, secured financing of approximately SEK 2,800,000,000 during the spring of 2019, primarily by completion of the above mentioned transaction, by completion of the transaction with a large Swedish institution previously announced in February and by establishing a credit facility with Nordea.

Vinge’s team mainly consisted of partner Albert Wållgren, associates Lionardo Ojeda and Axel Jansson (Banking and Finance) and partner Emma Stuart Beck and associate Caroline Krassén (Financial Services).
