Setting the course for sustainable mobility

We support private initiatives in public transport and contribute to shifting traffic from the road to the rail for the good of the environment. Reliable rail services improve infrastructure, enhance efficiency, protect the climate and ensure mobility and growth. We support the provision of such an infrastructure, its preservation and modernisation by financing the acquisition of new freight wagons, locomotives and multiple units by private operators the world over.


Sustainable mobility

Our financings benefit the German and European railroad industry and promote innovative solutions that further increase the environmental benefits of rail transport. After all, as a responsible financier we are interested in the latest technologies. Innovative railroad vehicles are not only better for the environment - they offer a better value performance as well.


Our financing products in the rail transport segment:

  • Classic long-term loans with assets as collateral
  • Object financings with assumption of residual value risk
  • Export financings
  • Supply and performance guarantees
  • Project financings

Selected financing cases:
