In the 3 months of 2024, compared to the corresponding period in 2023, both in terms of volume and the number of supported projects, the volume of new transactions has increased, as well as an increase in the portfolio of support instruments compared to the end of 2023.

Trends characterizing the reporting period:

  • Lending activity in the first quarter of the year has significantly increased YoY basis - the volume of new transactions increased by 51%, while the number of supported projects increased by 43%. Corporates’ demand for the financing was mainly triggered by interest rate reliefs introduced by ALTUM.
  • In the 1st quarter of 2024, there was a high demand for loans to companies with ticket size up to EUR 100 thousand, which ALTUM implemented as of beginning of the year in order to promote lending in the regions, thus with significantly reduced collateral requirements. Within three months, projects for a total of EUR 8 million were approved, the average amount of the project is approximately EUR 35 thousand.
  • Lending activity in the Agriculture segment increased significantly, where demand was boosted by the reduced rate introduced by ALTUM for working capital loans to farmers.
  • During the reporting period, the demand for sales and leaseback transactions of the Land Fund managed by ALTUM has increased.
