The Swiss group will take advantage of Öhman Bank Luxembourg’s longstanding presence and in-depth understanding of clients’ needs in the Nordic markets, with the objective of offering its new client base its full range of services using a transversal approach.

The financial terms of the transaction are not disclosed. Deloitte served as financial advisor to Reyl & Cie Ltd in the transaction.
