Liquidity gives you room for maneuver

Sometimes leasing or a loan – for instance a development credit or syndicated loan – is the best form of finance, but occasionally there are logical and affordable alternatives. Particularly when it comes to making major investments, corporations and mid-market companies alike rely on LBBW's expertise in corporate bond issue and arrangement of Schuldschein. LBBW is one of the top names in Europe in this field.


With corporate bonds there is a lot of money at stake – usually at least EUR 500 million – not to mention a lot of trust. Investors need to be able to count on getting their invested capital back. Which is why bonds are such a popular option, and one that LBBW can help with. First, we carry out an in-depth assessment of companies that express an interest in issuing bonds.

Flexible loan terms

At LBBW, there is a measure of flexibility when it comes to the terms, conditions and repayment terms for loans – and the same applies to the interest rate, too. You can agree a fixed interest rate, which provides a reliable basis for calculations, or you can opt for a variable interest rate, with which you could benefit from attractive trends. We are equally flexible when it comes to loan terms. Our evidence suggests a term that corresponds to the normal useful life of the capital goods. But if you have other ideas, we are open to discussion.

LBBW offers:

  • Annuity loans with fixed repayment amounts that give you peace of mind
  • Installment loans based on a fixed repayment amount and a declining interest amount
  • Bullet loans where the entire loan amount is repayable upon maturity

Syndicated loans: Achieving great things together

A growth drive, a major acquisition or branching out into new business areas – if you have big plans and want to safeguard your future, then a syndicated loan is for you. This type of financing involves two or more banks joining together to offer the borrower uniform credit terms. Companies like to use this type of credit facility as an anchor in their financing mix because syndicated loans provide them with the financial security they require to press ahead with new phases of growth while offering the greatest degree of flexibility.
