CrossLend

CrossLend offers a cross-border marketplace lending platform that makes pan-European investments possible via a single platform.

CrossLend is a marketplace lending platform established in 2014 and based in Berlin, Germany. The firm transforms loans from originators such as banks, neobanks, non-banking lenders and lenders into bonds and sells them to investors like funds, banks, family offices and insurance companies so that investors can invest via the CrossLend platform and to facilitate free flow of funds. CrossLend is active in Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom, France, Finland, Denmark, Ireland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United States and the Netherlands. CrossLend is always working to expand their client base across markets.



CrossLend's platform connects private and institutional investors from low-interest rate countries with borrowers from high-interest rate countries and intermediates loans and securitizes them into bonds in which they can invest, enabling investors with attractive risk-return profiles and borrowers with attractive interest rates.



As originators, banks may expand their origination capacity and increase income whilst simultaneously improving their capital reserves. As investors, banks can earn positive carry and diversify their investments across countries and debt asset classes.
