North Channel Bank GmbH & Co. KG
North Channel Bank GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1924 as the privately owned bank Bankhaus Oswald Kruber, located in Berlin. In 2009, a group of North American investors with expertise in the US Life Settlement sector acquired the bank and renamed it North Channel Bank. In the following years the bank developed into one of the leading institutes in US Life Settlement financing. In 2013, with the acquisition of the affiliate NorthStar Life Services, LLC, Irvine, CA, now operating as NorthStar Life Settlement Trading, LLC the bank gained direct access to and influence on a reliable, experienced, and renowned servicer. Today, in addition to financing, the bank also offers investments in US Life Settlements. In the structured finance division the bank focuses in particular on financing in the renewable energies sector, (especially equity interim financing), capital goods and growth financing.
