Ashurst has advised fintech firm On Deck Australia on establishing a $75 million securitisation warehouse provided by Credit Suisse and backed by On Deck’s business loan asset portfolio.

Ashurst also advised Perpetual, the trustee, standby servicer, security trustee and manager.

The arrangement reflects On Deck’s growth in the small business loans sector in which it has loaned over $8 billion to over 80,000 businesses in Australia, Canada, and the US.

The Ashurst team was led by global markets partner Jennifer Schlosser and included Ian Kellock and Barbara Phair (tax), and Phil Trinca (regulatory).

A separate Ashurst team acted for Perpetual led by partner Jamie Ng.

King & Wood Mallesons acted for Credit Suisse.
