Sociedades de Garantía Recíproca

Las SGR (Sociedades de Garantía Recíproca) son 18 entidades financieras sin ánimo de lucro que facilitan a pymes y autónomos el acceso a la financiación mediante la concesión de avales.

Our resources

The funds that Aquisgrán lends to the Spanish SMEs come from institutional investors (pension funds, insurance companies, investment banks...) both Spanish and international, sourced directly or via the capital markets.

By financing loans to SMEs guaranteed by the SGRs, investors have access to an asset of very low risk and an attractive return.

The bonds issued by Aquisgrán will be listed in the stock market, thus giving liquidity to its investors, and making possible that the Spanish SMEs had, as the large corporations, access to the capital markets.

Why Aquisgrán

We named our company Aquisgrán, because it contains the acronym 'SGR', and is the name of a city (also known as Aachen and Aix- La-Chapelle) considered as the cradle of Europe, thus emphasizing the potential of replication of our project in other European countries.

  • Aquisgrán aims to be an example for similar initiatives in other countries of Europe, that could develop the potential of their respective ‘sociedades de garantía’ as catalysts of private resources towards the financing of European SME’s.
