Dillon Eustace acted as advisers to Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch who provided financing for the recent securitisation of mortgage loan receivables originated by Seniors Money Mortgages (Ireland) DAC and Seniors Money (Spain) Finance DAC. Both are members of the Seniors Money group who specialise in providing lifetime mortgages to individuals aged over 60.
