Digital consumer lender Auxmoney has placed an initial securitization of 250 million euros, consisting of 30,000 unsecured consumer loans, with one of the first social bond transactions in Europe.
The transaction is labeled “Fortuna 2021 – STS German Consumer ABS”.
With this first transaction, Auxmoney claims to respond to the strong demand for ESG investments from institutions.
Proceeds from the show are used to provide credit to those underserved by banks, he adds.
Daniel Drummer, Chief Financial Officer of Auxmoney, said investor demand for ESG compliant assets is very high.
“With social bonds, Auxmoney offers institutional investors the opportunity to promote financial inclusion and invest with social values.”
