SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 16 March, 2023 – Shift, a leading provider of credit and payment platforms for Australian businesses, today announced the completion of a $200 million ABS, the Shift 2023-1 Trust, which is the company’s inaugural public deal.
Issued to a range of Australian and international institutional investors, the ABS is supported by a pool of asset finance contracts originated by Shift.
National Australian Bank acted as the Arranger and Joint Lead Manager for the transaction, with Westpac Banking Corporation also acting as Joint Lead Manager.
