Vinge advises NatWest Markets in connection with a securitisation of secured SME loans

May 19, 2021

Vinge has acted for NatWest Markets N.V. as senior lender in the structuring, documenting and execution of a securitisation of secured loans to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) granted by DBT Capital AB and its subsidiary (”DBT”), in cooperation with, amongst others, the management of DBT and DBT’s legal advisor. In connection with the securitisation, DBT entered into an up to SEK 1,000,000,000 financing agreement with NatWest Markets as senior lender.

DBT is a Swedish private lender registered with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority and who offers corporate loans and financing to SMEs in Sweden.

The transaction is executed and reported under the EU securitisation regulation (Regulation (EU) 2017/2402 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2017) and is subject to the reporting requirements thereunder.

Vinge’s team consisted primarily of responsible partner Albert Wållgren together with associates Lionardo Ojeda, Paulina Malmberg, Seyran Sahin, Axel Jansson, Elin Samara and Rebecka Målquist.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
