Job Description

About CrossLend: 

CrossLend is a cutting-edge FinTech company: We are reshaping the European lending economy by connecting the loan origination of banks to institutional money. CrossLend purchases single loan receivables in different asset classes from banks, securitizes them one-by-one and places the resulting bonds to institutional investors. 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.

CrossLend’s vision is to establish the first European Debt Exchange. CrossLend is backed by a reputable array of equity investors from Europe and the U.S. such as Lakestar, CME Ventures and the Luxembourg Future Fund with a wide range of experience and extensive networks.
