Corporate Finance

Well advised into the future

It is challenging to run a medium-sized company: Selling companies or parts of them, arranging succession, acquiring competitors as well as raising growth capital - all these are often very complex projects, usually unique in the history of a company, which can hardly be managed apart from the day-to-day business and without external support.

Our corporate finance experts support you in the successful implementation of your plans. Together with you, we want to realize the strategic investments of your company. These may be major takeovers, spin-offs or changes in the shareholder structure.

Thanks to our integrated approach and our financial strength, we can even act as lead manager, arranger or bookrunner and, at the client's request, organise the syndication or join a consortium. As a result, low triple-digit million loans are now feasible for ourselves.

In corporate finance, we are particularly strong in those industries that we know perfectly well. In addition to commercial real estate financing, shipping, renewables, logistics and infrastructure, these include trade, food and health. We can offer these clients the complete package throughout Germany - from M&A and debt advisory to underwriting and syndication. We are a small but excellent address: In the last decade we have completed an average of up to 30 transactions per year.

Focus on your strategy and your needs

Corporate finance processes are always accompanied by strategic issues that are influenced by the respective industry. Our consultants know your market, value chains, direct and indirect competition, economic, political and cultural conditions as well as bureaucratic and legal requirements. This enables us to provide you with well-founded answers to your questions and to develop the appropriate solutions in dialogue with you.

In future, this will also include the private equity business. In the first half of 2019, we were still very cautious about LBO financing. But in the future we want to be a very attractive partner for private equity houses in German buyouts in the range of EUR 120 to 150 million.

For forward thinkers - for you.

Our solutions

We analyse your project and develop the best solution for you together with you. In doing so, we combine our experience and expertise in corporate finance consulting with our experience in the capital market and corporate financing. If we know where you want to go, we will quickly tell you whether we can do it ourselves and make you a binding offer. And if we can't help you ourselves, we have no problem working with cooperation partners.

Talk to us. Challenge us.

We see ourselves as a commercial bank and therefore stand for personalities with vision, passion and initiative. In particular, we support our medium-sized customers in Germany and in neighbouring European countries in their strategic projects. We are proud to know many of our clients personally. Over the years, we have acquired in-depth market and industry expertise. We look forward to discussing your projects together. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
