Among the best in Europe
“For 11 years the Private Equity Awards have been bestowed on private equity firms that have achieved the most outstanding results in the industry. This award confirms that Vinge is the Nordic region’s leading private equity adviser and that we are among the best in Europe which is of course both gratifying and something of which we are very proud” , says Christina Kokko.

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.
