Our SME Alternative Financing platform is an innovative investment solution offering exposure to European SME’s, a largely untapped opportunity for investors. We’ve invested in technology and systems to create a cutting-edge platform. All backed by an A-rated bank committed to the real economy. We combine quantitative and qualitative assessments to ensure high credit quality, looking at profitability, turnover and ESG factors. Our SME Alternative Financing team is developing key differentiated origination partnerships able to raise loan volumes, support credit analysis the end to end lending process.  We follow an overall investment process (from origination to monitoring) designed to address a high volume of credit applications and to perform a close monitoring of the underwritten loans.
