Hypoport’s Joint Venture With IKB Deutsche Industriebank

P+P Pöllath + Partners advised Hypoport on the deal.

Hypoport announced its joint venture with IKB Deutsche Industriebank in the field of corporate financing. IKB intends to open up a new distribution channel and offer a significant volume of additional corporate financing through the “fundingport” platform, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hypoport SE.

The agreement provides for IKB to hold a 30% stake in fundingport GmbH and is still subject to regulatory approval.

Lübeck-based Hypoport SE is the parent company of the Hypoport Group. With more than 2,000 employees, the Hypoport Group is a network of technology companies for the credit & real estate and insurance industries.
