Winners are chosen each year by the famed international business magazine Global Capital (formerly EuroWeek) based on a survey of issuers, international investors and investment banks. BayernLB has been a leader in the Schuldschein note loan business for years. In 2016 we were again in the top 3 of all league tables with over 30 Schuldschein transactions.
In addition to long years of experience and outstanding expertise in structuring and placing Schuldschein note loans, BayernLB offers customers a wide range of products ranging from classic domestic and international Schuldschein notes and structured Schuldscheins to so-called green Schuldscheins for financing environmentally friendly projects. For example, BayernLB successfully placed the first Green Schuldschein issue in the world to be certified under the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) for wind turbine maker Nordex SE. Prior to that, we also played an active part in growing the market segment with the largest transaction in history to date, a EUR 2.2 billion Schuldschein for ZF Friedrichshafen.
Our efficient structuring ability, intensive service before, during and after the transaction and extensive know-how are factors appreciated by our customers. These, together with mutual trust, is the basis of our success. “Being named Best Arranger of Schuldscheine makes us very proud and underlines our expertise in international capital markets,” said Ralf Woitschig, Board of Management member in charge of BayernLB’s capital markets business.
BayernLB is well-equipped for the booming Schuldschein note loan market which again hit a new record in 2016 with a volume of approximately EUR 27 billion.
