Nieuws -

Dear business partners,

During the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic we supported our clients through this challenging period. Now that the situation has improved, we continue to stand by our clients and are jointly pursuing new business. We have closed more than 13 transactions (with an additional one pending). In addition to our Leveraged Finance product offering, we provide complex, tailor-made Growth Finance solutions for privately or family-owned companies. We are especially pleased to share the following year-to-date 2021 highlights with you:

  • Successful start of the year with more than 13 closed transactions (with an additional one pending) in BeNeLux, DACH and the UK,
    Continued success of our Originate-to-Manage platform with new institutional investor partners enabling to jointly commit to larger FTHs of up to EUR 40m managed or serviced in one hand by NIBC,
  • Expansion of our CLO platform with the pricing of the new oversubscribed ESG-compliant North Westerly VII (EUR 400m) and NIBC’s North Westerly VI being awarded “Structured Finance and Securitisation Deal of the Year” by the International Financial Law Review.
  • On behalf of the NIBC Growth & Leveraged Finance team, I would like to thank you very much for your trust and cooperation so far in 2021. I am looking forward to working with you on new and exciting opportunities in the second half of the year.

Victor Ruitenberg
