The lifeblood of digitalization
The year 2020 could be a technological turning point
Alongside the financing of companies, commercial real estate, and shipping, project finance is one of HCOB's core areas of expertise. Infrastructure and energy supply projects require considerable market expertise, as well as careful risk management and well-qualified support during the entire project period, in addition to capital procurement.
Our teams offer you working capital credit lines, liquidity management, and access to capital markets. They also calculate all options for your risk hedging. In addition, we support and advise you on the purchasing and sale of projects and shares in companies, as well as on all project processing. If you wish, we also remain by your side throughout the entire project cycle.
It is important to us that we understand your plans and the underlying business. To assist us in this, we have over two decades of experience in the markets you work in. We understand their dynamics, currently subject to technical, regulatory, and structural changes.
We have been involved with infrastructure projects since 1994. We are among the top 15 infrastructure financers in Europe. For us, this position is an incentive to offer our clients the best solutions. We are also constantly developing, and we are familiar with and help to shape industry trends. Some of our transactions have enabled us to participate successfully in the expansion of the broadband network in Germany as well as in the development of data centers. Our experts are familiar with the megatrends for digital infrastructure, including district energy, liquid storage, and waste to energy, and are assisting our clients in creating projects to advance the future.
When it comes to renewable energies, we are a successful pioneer. Throughout Europe, we have to date financed projects in the asset classes of wind, solar, and hydroelectric power. With around 240 projects in the wind and solar sector alone and a total volume of around five billion euros, we are among the top European financers
We work with you to develop solutions for the financing of your project. Our teams combine various instruments and put together a financing package appropriate for you.
We have many years of experience in our core areas of expertise. In renewable energies, we usually take on the role of mandated lead arranger or provide financing in full as a bilateral transaction.
In so doing, we offer you a wide range of services, from classic loans to complex structured financing with a high equity share. It goes without saying that project loans (e.g. KfW, EIB) or, if required, ECA coverage (e.g. Euler-Hermes, EKF) can be optimally integrated. In addition, we support you with syndications in both directions so as to find the desired balance between risks and returns.
Credit & Loans
We are the bank for your business and finance your projects quickly and bindingly. The final hold positions for new business, for example in renewable energy projects, are between 20 and 60 million euros. And if we can't handle your project on our own, we have no problem working with other banks and cooperation partners. Our claim: We find the best financing solution for you.
If project financing goes beyond mere lending, our experts structure your project creatively and solution-oriented. Our range of services extends from classic loans and equity-preserving hybrid products to equity solutions and syndications.
In addition to the classic financing services, our corporate finance know-how may also be of interest to you. For example, we can support you in your search for co-investors or in setting up a joint venture. And if a major acquisition or equity transaction is pending, our M&A experts will accompany you through the entire process - from the analysis of your options, preparation and individual structuring, through the search for and selection of the right partners, to the signing of the contract
