Vinge has acted as advisor to APG Asset Management in their investment in Areim Fund II, a real estate fund mainly focusing on office properties in larger Swedish cities. Areim Fund II has a target of commitments of SEK 2.5 billion upon final closing, which would give Areim Fund II around SEK 6-7 billion to invest.

Vinge has for several years been active in fund establishment and was e.g. the advisor to the first fund established in the form of a limited liability company in Sweden. Vinge has since then been involved in the majority of fund establishments in this form.

The European Commission proposes a new Single Market Emergency Instrument

On 19 September 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a new regulation on an emergency instrument for the Single Market. Following the Covid-19 pandemic and other crises in the last years, the Union has seen internal entry restrictions, unpredictable rules and supply disruptions which, according to the Commission, have highlighted that there are structural shortcomings in the EU legal framework on the Single Market. The proposed emergency instrument aims to preserve the free movement of goods, services and persons and to ensure the availability of essential goods and services in the event of future emergencies.
