Infrastructure (PPP)

Infrastructure projects require long-term thinking. That fits well with us because our business philosophy is also oriented to the long term. Besides, infrastructure investors operate in a regulated environment, and this requires specific expert knowledge. We possess outstanding technical know-how to appraise and give support to our projects, and we have excellent expertise as a modelling bank. We analyse and prepare business plans and cash flow models and have profound knowledge that we draw on when we work out the optimal financing structure with our clients.

Whether in the form of deliveries and services or capital investments - the infrastructure projects and investments we finance are closely connected to the German and European economy.

Cooperation between the state and the private sector

In the financing of infrastructure projects, public-private partnerships (PPP) play a significant role all over the world. We finance projects in which private enterprises are in charge of the construction, operation and maintenance of public infrastructure such as a school, hospital or public administrative building. This enables the modernisation of communal services while allowing the public sector to focus on its core functions.

Our main financing products:

  • Project financings with maturities to match the investments
  • Corporate financings for investment measures
  • Structured financings tailored to individual situations
  • Guarantees
  • Derivatives to supplement the product range
