Deal: Brighte Capital Limited (Brighte) has established a green asset finance warehouse with NAB.

Key players: The team advising Brighte was led by Ashurst partner Jennifer Schlosser.

Deal significance: Brighte, a technology fintech that provides financing for green energy household products, such as solar panels and batteries, has established a $20 million debt facility.

NAB was the funder for the structured finance deal, with Brighte as the originator, seller, servicer and income unit holder.
