Structured Finance

Effination from one source

Our experts in the area of structured finance advise your company as the interface between classical corporate banking and investment banking. From the restructuring of debt and equity capital to the securitisation of assets we support you in designing and implementing complex and multi-layered financing structures, especially in the structuring of liabilities. We also draw on other resources and expertise of the Bank as required in order to provide goal-oriented advice and solutions for your tasks. We therefore offer you an integrated and efficient approach from a single source. Among other things we have specialised in the following areas:

Capital Structuring

Your company's rating has an increasing impact on your financing costs due to new requirements such as Basel III. We assist you in identifying the levers of your company's creditworthiness and actively adjusting them. Our capital structuring team will support you in optimising your financing arrangements. We combine the different financing instruments with legal and other creative structures in order to achieve additional benefits for your company besides the pure financing function. This process can not only optimise your rating but can also benefit you with regard to tax, regulatory and accounting questions and improve your risk structure.

Leveraged Finance

This team supports you by providing financing solutions for the acquisition of companies, business units and shares in domestic companies. This also includes the sale to the previous management (management buyout) or to external investors (management buy in), partly with additional debt financing. In this connection we also provide advice and support regarding the restructuring of the company and group.

Structured Leases

We support large and medium-sized companies in the structuring of leasing-based investment projects in real estate, movable and intangible assets. Close cooperation with the DAL Group enables us to develop optimised off-balance sheet financing arrangements for you from a single source. In so doing, we take particular account of the very different and multi-faceted strategic objectives of our clients. Basel III, the conversion to IFRS or US GAAP reporting, but also the (tax) optimisation of acquisitions or succession rules for family business are only some of the challenges that we will gladly meet together with the leasing specialists. In the area of structured leases we arrange or structure financing for the owner or user of individual or aggregated assets that also help to achieve balance sheet, tax or risk-related objectives in addition to the pure financing function.
