Berlin FinTech CrossLend joins BAI, Germany’s association for the alternative investment industry


CrossLend, a Berlin-based FinTech that provides technology-driven end-to-end solutions for loan asset transactions has become a member of the Bundesverband Alternative Investments (BAI), the interest group for alternative investments. The BAI works to improve the legal and regulatory frameworks for product and service providers, as well as institutional investors in the alternative investments space.

As a technological and transactional partner to the lending industry on both the investor and originator side, CrossLend’s aim to enable the free flow of capital across Europe and bridge the gap between the real economy and the capital markets is closely aligned with BAI’s guiding principle that providing investors with access to better and more diversified investments in alternatives offers a sustainable means of safeguarding long-term retirement pensions and can serve to channel capital into the real economy. The synergy of interests and activities between BAI and CrossLend also extends to a mutual commitment to growing opportunities in the realm of digital and sustainable (ESG) investments.

CrossLend’s COO Marco Hinz says, “We support BAI’s rigorous and proactive approach to improving the legal and policy frameworks relating to alternative investments, which are core to our business. BAI is a catalyst on the regulatory front, we are a catalyst on the technological front – and we both share the same aims – in particular helping Europe’s real economy to thrive via the capital markets. In joining BAI, CrossLend aims to broaden its network of allies and lend its voice and industry experience to the Verband’s research, education and lobbying activities.
