Do you have big plans in mind? Do you want to build a solar park or a wind park? Or invest in infrastructure projects such as the expansion of fiber optic networks or power lines? Do you bid on PPP projects that involve working with the public sector to upgrade schools or hospitals? If you have ambitious projects, we have the suitable solution: LBBW executes capital-intensive projects with structured project finance.
With project finance, LBBW assumes some of the risk: Invested money plus interest is repaid primarily from future project cash flow. Lenders need to be convinced that the investment will be a successful one, which is why LBBW carries out extensive risk analyses. Agreements are also drafted such that the project risks are distributed adequately among the parties involved.
