Vinge advises SEB in connection with a strategic partnership and investment in the economy app Tink

May 26, 2016

During this autumn, SEB’s mobile app will include a new and improved function which automatically sorts all purchases into various categories.

This is possible thanks to a new strategic partnership with the company behind the award winning app, Tink. SEB will also become a partner in Tink.

The agreement entails that SEB is entitled to use Tink technology in order to aggregate and categorise customer data. During this autumn, SEB’s private customers will thus be able to more easily use the app to acquire a better overview of their expenses. The partnership is anchored through SEB becoming a partner in Tink. SEB is investing SEK 36 million in a capital procurement amounting in total to SEK 85 million.

Vinge’s team consisted of partners Johan Larsson and Eva Fredriksson together with, among others, associates Louise Nordquist and Malin Malm.

On Tuesday 21 December, the EU Court of Justice delivered its long-awaited judgment in the Bank Melli Iran case (Case C-124/20) on the interpretation of the EU Blocking Statute regarding compliance with third country sanctions. According to the Court, the prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings. Following the Court’s judgment, anyone seeking to terminate a contract with a person or business subject to US sanctions must thoroughly consider if the termination is motivated by other reasons than the existing sanctions and reflect on whether to apply to the Commission for a derogation from the Blocking Statute.
