CrossLend is a cutting-edge Fintech company: We are reshaping the European lending economy by connecting the loan origination of banks to institutional money.

This way, CrossLend offers a flexible and efficient balance sheet relief mechanism for capital constraint banks and helps to actively manage the banks' loan books. Banks can increase their operational efficiency and reduce their costs of capital and customer acquisition costs with CrossLend.
