Public Investment Clients

pbb has taken on an important economic role with the financing of public investments

pbb Deutsche Pfandbriefbank offers its clients many years of experience in public investment financing and is one of the few public sector lenders operating in this area across Europe. In addition to France and Germany, the bank’s main focus in this business area is on the United Kingdom, Spain and the Nordic countries. In these countries, clients benefit not only from locally based, individual origination teams but, in most instances, also from further functions - such as loan servicing - which have also been established at the regional locations to provide specific know how. Other European markets are being covered from these existing locations.


Our lending products encompass:

  • Investment loans - Investment-related financing for the public sector and related entities
  • PPP - Lending for public goods investments and infrastructure including project finance
  • Export Finance - Lending that benefits from backing provided by select European Export Credit Agencies

Such lending demands specialist skills in the areas of origination, structuring - both in financial technique and loan documentation, underwriting and credit analysis as well as agency and syndica-tion expertise. Our clients also benefit from pbb’s expertise as one of the leading real estate financiers in Europe, particularly when projects have a real estate background, for example city develop-ment or real estate leasing.

pbb Deutsche Pfandbriefbank targets primary customer business. In addition to the classic or indi-vidually tailored financing solutions, pbb Deutsche Pfandbriefbank also offers its customers deriva-tive products for risk-hedging as well as advisory services. Together with long-standing partners, the bank also provides larger financing solutions within the framework of consortium and syndicate financing.
