Frankfurt am Main, Germany, July 8, 2020 ? creditshelf Aktiengesellschaft, the leading credit platform for digital SME finance in Germany, continued to grow significantly in the first half of 2020 driven by a strong second quarter. A key driver was the successful closing of the creditshelf Loan Fund. The positive development of creditshelf's loan business in the first half of 2020 is reflected in the following numbers:


  • At EUR 34.0 million, the volume of arranged loans in Q2 was 80 % above the same quarter of the previous year (Q2 2019: EUR 18.9 million).
  • With additional investor funds from the creditshelf Loan Fund, it was possible to not only serve loan requests from the second quarter but also loans not yet disbursed from the first quarter.
  • Furthermore, the expanding network of the creditshelf platform with successful partnerships and the initiative to finance growth companies contributed significantly to this positive development.
  • As the leading credit platform for digital and innovative financing solutions for German SMEs, creditshelf arranged a total accumulated loan volume of EUR 236.4 million between its launch in 2015 and June 30, 2020.
  • With EUR 860.1 million, the volume of loans requested was 42 % higher than the result for H1 2019 (EUR 606.8 million).
  • The average tenor of loans arranged in H1 2020 slightly decreased to 24.5 months (H1 2019: 26.8).
  • The average ticket size of loans arranged in H1 2020 was kEUR 1,014 (H1 2019: kEUR 731), in Q2 it was kEUR 1,135.
  • Risk-adjusted pricing leads to a volume-weighted increase in the average loan interest rate to 9.0 % (H1 2019: 8.2 %).

Dr. Tim Thabe, CEO of creditshelf, stated:

"In Q2 we were able to successfully continue our growth. A key step was the closing of the creditshelf Loan Fund: in terms of diversifying our institutional investor base, it marks a milestone for us, and at the same time it is an important signal to German SMEs. We are proud that our offering with smart, digital processes, individual customer support and data-based, daily updated risk analysis has established itself as an important component of the market for SME finance, and that our growth financing product is being well received. The result of the second quarter leaves us optimistic for the second half of the year."

The complete half-year report 2020 will be published by creditshelf on September 10, 2020.
