RBI and vc trade increase transparency in the Schuldschein market

Raiffeisen Bank International AG (RBI) has said that it will cooperate with the fully integrated digital issuing platform vc trade in the area of capital market financing. This makes RBI the first Austrian bank to offer its customers complete transparency in structuring, marketing and placing schuldschein loans.

vc trade is the market-leading platform for private placements. The platform relies on cooperation with arranging banks in order to achieve a high degree of quality and transaction security. It maps the established process from the issuer with the involvement of the arranging bank to the investor in full digital form, thereby increasing transparency, efficiency and speed of the issue and significantly reducing costs. This makes schuldschein loans more attractive for smaller issuers as well.

Structuring, sales, subscription, pricing and allocation, as well as the entire lifecycle management of a capital market transaction, are mapped consistently and transparently on the central marketplace.

“With vc trade, RBI is in a position to focus even more on advising clients and structuring transactions. At the same time, we are opening up a significantly larger issuer base and thus increasing RBI’s business potential,” says Lukasz Januszewski, board member in charge of markets & investment banking.

Stefan Fromme, co-founder and managing director of vc trade, is pleased about the new partner RBI. “We are happy to have gained RBI as a strong partner in the German-speaking and Eastern European countries. For vc trade, this means not only having won another major arranger in the schuldschein market market, but also a further internationalization of its issuer and investor base”.
