ISIA: DIVERSIFYING SOURCES OF INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT FINANCING
In 2017, Idinvest Partners launched the Idinvest SME Industrial Assets (ISIA) fund, expanding our Asset Finance unit and rounding out our range of private debt financing solutions. Aimed at SMEs in the industrial sector, ISIA is a new source of custom financing that raises funds through the sale and leaseback (finance lease or operating lease) of new or existing industrial equipment.
The fund has a diverse portfolio spanning a range of different geographies, sectors, ratings and risk concentrations, with around 70 deals, none of which may exceed €30 million.
ISIA offers a source of financing that goes hand in hand with public-sector industrial financing policies. That’s why in April 2019, Idinvest signed France’s first strategic partnership between a fund and a public/state entity with Hauts-de-France (the country’s second-largest industrial region) to offer an innovative financing solution specifically designed for industrial SMEs.
FINANCING SOLUTIONS TAILORED TO EACH SME’S SPECIFIC NEEDS
Our investment team focuses on the industrial sector, and specifically on low-obsolescence and low-technology-risk equipment.
ISIA has a whole range of advantages for industrial SMEs: a quick, easy application process (4 weeks); diverse sources of financing; long-term, fixed-rate financing; and the ability to combine it with a traditional bank loan.
Businesses can use a dedicated platform to submit their financing applications online.
3 MAIN INVESTMENT CRITERIA
We assess industrial asset financing opportunities based on three general criteria:

A word from the CEO of Excelrise
ISIA’s team is very attentive, flexible and professional. They take the time to understand our needs and adapt the amount and conditions of our financing accordingly. Once the terms were agreed upon, everything was set up extremely quickly. This type of financing supplements traditional bank loans and is a perfect fit for capital-intensive businesses.
