The EGP 922.3 million ($29.8 million) issuance is part of a short-term program that has been renewed and is backed by a receivables portfolio assigned to EFG Hermes’ Financial Group for Securitization, the issuance’s Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV).

By bolstering our liquidity position, this move aligns perfectly with our aspirations to further solidify Valu’s position as a comprehensive lifestyle enabler, offering end-to-end fintech solutions that cater to the evolving financial needs of our clients.”

It plays a pivotal role in fostering financial empowerment and inclusivity within the market, extending its services to include investment products, an instant cash redemption program, and savings solutions through five unique verticals: U, Business, Akeed, Flip, and Invest.

Maie Hamdy, Managing Director – Debt Capital Markets at EFG Hermes, said “We are proud to continue playing our role in Valu’s continued growth, this latest offering in our series of securitization issuances has been covered successfully over one and a half times. This securitization transaction not only underscores our commitment to delivering innovative financial solutions but also highlights the robust collaboration between our teams.
