Structured Finance


The financing of any project depends on the sector, the business model, the market situation and the right timing.


At the interface between conventional corporate banking and investment banking we support you with our expertise in the (re-)structuring of debt and equity capital, financing your current assets and funding your acquisition.


We solve these complex tasks in an all-round, tailor-made, efficient manner. In this way we create a stable financing structure for your project.

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.

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.
