Syndicated trade loans

Generally, syndicated trade loans (STL) entail unsecured short to medium-term financing for banks and corporates without any material structural characteristics. AKA participates in STLs both bilaterally and in international syndicates.

Personally committed to clear finance solutions

Participations may be disclosed or non-disclosed, funded or unfunded – in either the primary or the secondary market – and primarily focusing on the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) region.


In addition to conventional STLs, AKA is also involved in co-financing with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and other multinational organisations. With these products, AKA attaches importance to the preferred creditor status of the co-financing organisation in order to mitigate risk as far as possible.

Furthermore, AKA participates in financing provided to development banks in the emerging markets. Normally, it is necessary for such development banks to have a multinational interest of the countries involved to promote investment – subject to a credit check at the level of the individual transaction.
