creditshelf and Sparkasse Bremen agree on cooperation
- Cooperation in lending to SME corporate customers
- Unsecured loans from creditshelf as a complementary, innovative addition to Sparkasse Bremen's loan products offering
- Following the successful Commerzbank cooperation, this is the next milestone in creditshelf's growth strategy
Frankfurt am Main, April 22, 2021 ‒ creditshelf Aktiengesellschaft and Sparkasse Bremen enter into a broad cooperation agreement for the SME corporate customers segment. Sparkasse Bremen will refer loan requests, where its customers can benefit from an additional, unsecured financing component, to creditshelf. While Sparkasse Bremen thus further strengthens its outstanding position in the corporate customer business with an innovative offer, creditshelf opens an additional sales channel.
As an additional financing component, Sparkasse Bremen can now also provide its customers with loan offers from creditshelf AG. Unsecured loan offers up to EUR 5 million and with a term of up to 8 years are thus available as an addition or alternative to the comprehensive loan offering of Sparkasse Bremen. With the customer's consent, loan requests are submitted via creditshelf AG's digital lending platform. After a maximum of not more than 48 hours, the savings bank and the customer receive feedback. Successfully arranged loans are subsequently placed with registered, institutional investors.
Klaus Windheuser, Member of the Management Board of Sparkasse Bremen: "creditshelf is the ideal partner for us to add an innovative component to our comprehensive financing offering in the corporate customer segment. The cooperation fits perfectly with our focus on digital and efficient solutions while staying close to our customers. We can thus provide our customers with a further, tailor-made offer for their individual financing needs. The cooperation with creditshelf is a powerful partnership with great potential for the future."
