Šiaulių Bankas offers loans and leasing with Invega portfolio guarantee



After Šiaulių Bankas and Investicijų ir verslo garantijos UAB (Invega) signed two new agreements for portfolio guarantees financed by the European Regional Development Fund, Šiaulių Bankas invites the small and medium-sized enterprises to apply for credits and leasing with the Invega portfolio guarantee.

“We notice that more and more Lithuanian companies are planning to expand their business, to invest and modernize it, so they are actively interested in the financing opportunities offered by the bank. Small and medium-sized businesses often have questions about insufficiency of collateral or other means of repayment security. In such cases, portfolio guarantees can facilitate the access to financing”, says Daiva Šorienė, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Šiaulių Bankas and Head of Business Development Division.

According to D. Šorienė, financing with portfolio guarantees for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) of the country not only provide more financing possibilities. This measure allows the bank to offer more favourable financing conditions to the business, such as lower interest rates, or in the case of leasing, the possibility to acquire the necessary assets through leasing without an initial payment.

In addition, Šiaulių bankas is provided with a portfolio guarantee, which means that companies will not have to wait for additional Invega’s decision as in the case of individual guarantee.

Through leasing with Invega guarantee, SMEs can acquire new production equipment or installation.
