Galinat Bank AG: The private bank for SMEs

The Gallinat-Bank AG, founded in 1962 by Hans Gallinat und Hans Eggeling and still operating under the same name, has its origins in commercial and consumer loans. Over the past five decades, the Gallinat Bank, now a member of the Hamburg-based ALBIS Leasing Group, has developed into a strong partner, in particular for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

We know the ins and outs of SMEs and the challenges they face. As flexible as SMEs need to react to changing market conditions and innovative technological developments, our bank must react equally flexible with tailored so­­lutions to meet all needs and framework conditions.

Whether loans, lease financing, forfaiting or ABS transactions – our spectrum of financing instruments is as wide-ranging as the demands of our clients. As a spe­­­cialist in refinancing of independent leas­­­ing and factoring companies, we have in-depth knowledge of the sector and know how to take advantage of current challenges and turn them into opportunities.

Visit us at our offices in Essen and Ham­­burg or arrange an appointment di­­rectly at your company’s premises – we are the private bank for SMEs.
