Financing for project financiers

Long-term loans

Our cashflow-based project financing enables us to offer you tailored finance solutions at matching maturities for private infrastructure companies in the areas of energy, transport, utilities and telecommunications.

As an arranger of syndicated finance, we get further finance partners on board, enabling us to offer complete loan financing from a single source.

What we offer:

• Currency: euro or US dollar, in certain cases local currency

• Term: generally between 4 and 18 years

• Interest rate: fixed or variable, market-oriented depending on project and country risk

• Collateral: usually as the company's fixed assets in the country of investment

• Structure: tailor-made and in compliance with the customer’s needs

Equity investments

We can also support your growth with equity capital. As a minority shareholder, we generate positive momentum for your project development and your reputation. In the development of regional and supra-regional platforms, the stake may be taken at holding company level or, in particular cases, at project level.

What we offer:

• Equity participation at holding company level or in the project company in the country of investment

• Generally a minority stake

• Variable structuring of risk components

• Voting rights and seat on the supervisory board on a case-by-case basis

• Clearly defined exit rules

Mezzanine finance

Through our subordinated loans, we take on greater risks and offer you individual solutions to supplement your equity capital basis.

What we offer:

• Form of finance between equity and debt capital

• Project-specific structuring

• Subordinated collateral

• Return appropriate to the risk level

• Conversion option

Promotional programmes for project financing

In addition to long-term financing, we offer promotional programmes to support project financiers in a targeted way. In doing so we can provide specialist advice on conceptual design and financing as well as arranging co-financing, with the aim of organising your transaction even more efficiently and sustainably.
