Project Description

The EBRD is providing a senior loan of up to EUR 15 million to Intesa Intesa Leasing d.o.o Beograd ("ILS" or the "Company"), a subsidiary of Banca Intesa a.d. Beograd ("BIB" or the "Parent"), the largest bank in Serbia.

Project Objectives

The Project aims to support micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) by increasing the availability of long-term lease financing for purchasing equipment, commercial vehicles and real estate for commercial purposes. Furthermore, EBRD will support ILS in diversifying its funding base as part of ILS' broader strategy to move towards sustainable long-term funding sources.

Transition Impact

The transition impact derives from expanding long-term lease financing to MSMEs, particularly outside the capital Belgrade, for purchasing equipment, commercial vehicles and real estate for commercial purposes. As a leading leasing company in Serbia with a focus on MSMEs and as a subsidiary of the largest bank in Serbia, ILS is an ideal partner to expand financial intermediation to MSMEs in Serbia. The Project will also contribute to promoting an improved regulatory framework for leasing activities through a Policy Dialogue component.
