Small nations, big opportunities: M&A trends and how the Nordics and Baltics could be the best investment of 2021

Overview

As the world grapples with the pandemic and market volatility, the Nordics and Baltics could offer one of the safest bets in times of uncertainty. These small, open economies have focused on building highly competitive environments that offer some of the most attractive opportunities in the European M&A markets.

This webinar, brought to you by The Legal 500 and Magnusson, explored the likely trends in the region’s M&A markets for 2021 and provided practical advice for GCs and investors. Our panellists also considered how the region’s booming tech scene is offering new opportunities to companies looking for high-potential businesses; and whether the Nordics and Baltics will become the tech heart of Europe in the years to come.
