Standing by the local economy

We finance investment by domestic companies in Germany and abroad, and help protect jobs and prosperity in Germany and Europe.

Our clients are large companies in key industries in Germany and Europe – automotive and plant engineering, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals and health, retail, consumer goods and speciality chemicals. In Germany alone these sectors account for 25 per cent of gross domestic product and a total of one third of all jobs.

Our clients' strength is their high level of internationality. They invest, produce and generate up to 80 per cent of their turnover in foreign countries. They represent Germany and Europe in global competition. In order to support them in their international growth, we serve as a long-term, reliable finance partner with a particular focus on the export sector. After all, today only a company with a global presence can keep pace with global competition while maintaining its market position and jobs.


We are one of the leading financiers of the export sector

To safeguard jobs and prosperity in Germany and Europe we provide our clients with tailor-made finance solutions. We are well versed in handling the promotional instruments of the German Federal Government and the KfW Group.

We serve a broad client base while focusing on specific sectors. We represent our clients' interests in consortia comprising international banks, and support them locally. This is because our clients' success depends not only on being provided with long-term finance, but also on the optimal structuring of the solutions we offer them to match the specific conditions and circumstances in the respective countries. To achieve this we make use of the KfW Group's global network of over 80 field offices in all regions of the world.


Our typical financing products are:

  • Traditional export finance using the instruments offered by numerous national Export Credit Agencies
  • Investment and acquisition finance in Germany and abroad (including state investment guarantees)
  • Maturity-matching and investment-based corporate finance solutions
  • Channelling of KfW promotional programmes through projects
  • Interest and currency derivatives

The stability provided by our legal structure has made us one of the leading long-term financiers of the export sector in Germany in the industries we cover. This lets us boost our clients' competitiveness and help German and European companies go international.
