New NSF fund to invest in SME loans
NSF is launching its first product in the field of digital lending. A new investment fund from the asset management and trust company NSF is to make diversified investments in Swiss and Liechtenstein SME loans. For this, NSF will use the software developed by i2 invest.
NSF is getting involved in digital lending. Via its first product in this area, the asset management and trust company headquartered in Vaduz will be investing in SME loans in Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
According to a press release issued by NSF, “this gives professional and qualified investors the opportunity to actively promote companies which form the backbone of the Swiss economy”. The newly established sub-fund SME Lending Fund Switzerland will be offered via the Swiss marketplace lending platforms Cashare, Crowd4Cash and Lend.
With its long-standing expertise in marketplace lending, the Zug-based lending FinTech i2 invest “actively supports” NSF. Founded in 2015, the company acts as a holistic software service provider for investments made by the fund. It offers software solutions that collect and evaluate investment data on lending platforms, serving professional investors in the process. In times of negative bank interest rates, the new asset class of digital lending has emerged as an attractive alternative investment opportunity, i2 explains on its website.
Michael Negele, Managing Director of NSF Wealth Management Trust reg, has been pursuing the concept of establishing an investment fund of this kind since 2016. “Thanks to the support of the software solution and the know-how of i2 invest, we can finally offer qualified investors access to marketplace lending in a structured, diversified and scalable form by means of an investment fund”, he comments in the press release.Back to overview
