Idinvest Partners, Allianz and CIR S.p.A. are now shareholders in the platform.
The platform, which routinely positions itself as the top SME lending platform in Continental Europe, has added a trio of major new investors.
The first is Idinvest Partners, a European mid-market private equity firm with close to €8bn under management. Insurance giant Allianz and CIR S.p.A. – a listed Italian firm majority owned by the De Benedetti family – are the other new investors in the round. All of Lendix’s existing shareholders also participated.
It has also seemingly established itself as the distribution partner of choice for the European Investment Bank, having recently clinched another €200m in lending capital via its investment arm, the European Investment Fund.
“We were convinced by Lendix's pan-European approach and its ability to meet the challenge of internationalisation in a business that is still very local,” said Matthieu Baret, a partner at Idinvest Partners.
