creditshelf gains another institutional loan investor


Frankfurt/Main, October 4, 2018 – creditshelf Aktiengesellschaft, a Frankfurt-based pioneer in the field of digital SME financing in Germany, has gained another significant loan investor. A listed German company has pledged a EUR 20 million investment.

The amount will be invested in SME loans as part of corporate cash management. The company is using creditshelf to invest short-term liquidity surpluses. Loans with shorter maturities have been deliberately invested in equal tranches, building up a corresponding loan portfolio to spread the risk.

creditshelf CEO Dr. Tim Thabe comments on the cooperation: “The ongoing low interest environment presents investors with major challenges. For the first time, we are pleased to add a classic listed group company from Germany to our circle of loan investors. This indicates that our role in the market as an originator of SME loans is garnering increasing attention among institutions.”

The importance of flexible financing solutions from creditshelf for SME borrowers and private equity sponsors has steadily increased in recent years as a supplement to bank offerings. This new type of investment has also met with great interest on the part of institutional investors, as it provides them with an asset class with an interesting risk/return profile that was previously only available to banks.

“The continuous expansion of our investor base increases our attractiveness for SME borrowers,” explains creditshelf COO Dr. Daniel Bartsch. “They not only receive faster loans, but also benefit from more favorable financing if they are adequately creditworthy.”
