Reinis Bērziņš, Chairman of the Management Board of Altum:

“The year 2023 was marked by a series of challenges in the national economy, which was followed by a cautious and wait-and-see attitude of entrepreneurs and individuals towards new investments. Under these conditions, ALTUM continued active lending, where a great focus was on lending under the EU Resilience and Recovery Fund’s programmes, the large investment loan programme, as well as introducing incentives for specific customer segments. This was also reflected in ALTUM's loan portfolio, which grew by 15% during the year, as opposed to a slight decrease a year earlier. The volume of new transactions last year also increased by 16% compared to 2022. The greatest activity is precisely in the SMEs and Midcaps’ segment, and in general, the greatest activity in loan instruments is for the implementation of energy efficiency and sustainability projects.

Good operational results in 2023 allowed ALTUM to introduce a series of favourable offers for various customer segments - these are benefits for both guarantees’ instruments and direct loans. Including setting a 0% guarantee premium for sustainable projects and a reduction of the guarantee’s premium by 50% for all commercial guarantees. Also, the total loan rate for companies in the SME segment has been reduced by about half, as well as a loan rate of 3.5% has been set for farmers' working capital loans, which created a great demand from farmers - at the end of last year and the beginning of 2024, EUR 26 million have already been committed in these loans. This also affected the increase in the volume of loans in the ALTUM’s portfolio in the Agriculture segment in 2023. In the Individuals’ segment, ALTUM reduced the guarantee’s fee by half in the housing guarantee programme for young professionals.

ALTUM took an important step to activate lending by reducing collateral requirements for loans up to EUR 100,000 and reducing interest rates for several customer segments. The impact of the reliefs on the volumes of new transactions will be visible in 2024-2025, at the same time already in the first months there is a great interest of customers and already in the first weeks there are companies that have submitted applications for financing in the amount of more than EUR 5 million, moreover, approximately 90% of the applications are from entrepreneurs in the regions. Also, interest rate reliefs have been introduced in the segment of business starters and in the loan programme for small loans in rural areas, which are very actively used by regional entrepreneurs. In order to promote lending and the continuation of investment plans of companies even in conditions of high credit rates, ALTUM plans to introduce new solutions in 2024 to activate business financing and promote the growth of the national economy.”.
