Project financing

Together we realize your project

We are your project partner on an equal footing – experienced and reliable

Icon project financing

Alongside the financing of companies, commercial real estate, and shipping, project financing 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.

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

Project financing – tailored, reliable, and quick

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.
