Project Description

The EBRD proposes to lend €22.2 million to DeltaCredit Bank, Russia which will make residential mortgage finance available to individuals in Russia. The project will support DeltaCredit Bank’s efforts to develop its mortgage loan business by providing on-lending funds for the expansion phase. Eligible borrowers will be able to obtain long-term financing to purchase residential property in Russia.

Transition Impact

The development of mortgage finance for private individuals is an important element of transition to a market economy. A thriving mortgage market can assist the growth of a Russian middle class and can act as a model for similar projects in the financial sector by supporting the advance of this fundamental retail banking product. In terms of development of financial markets, mortgage finance is a key element both as a core, reliable banking asset and as an instrument for securitisation.
