LBBW

If you have big plans, you need reliable partners. Financially strong and with a solid understanding of the market: LBBW arranges and finances complex projects.

Do you have big plans in mind? Do you want to build a solar park or a wind park? Or invest in infrastructure projects like new railway lines or an airport renovation? Do you bid on PPP projects that involve working with the public sector to upgrade schools or hospitals? If you have ambitious projects, we have a suitable solution: LBBW executes capital-intensive projects with structured project finance.

With project finance, LBBW assumes some of the risk: Invested money plus interest is repaid primarily from future project cash flow. Lenders need to be convinced that the investment will be a successful one, which is why LBBW carries out extensive risk analyses. Agreements are also drafted such that the project risks are distributed adequately among the parties involved.

 

Our teams of experts in Stuttgart, Leipzig, London, and New York work with you to structure and arrange your project finance solutions. Our specialists have extensive expertise in the particular challenges involved in advancing large-scale projects. They also develop comprehensive finance packages that take into account not only financing maturities and risks but also interest rate hedging, cash management solutions, promotional funding, and the involvement of further bank partners in a syndicate. We also work closely with colleagues from other departments on a regular basis on project finance matters.

BPL GLOBAL

BPL Global: who we are & what we stand for 

BPL Global is the world’s leading insurance broker specialising in credit and political risk insurance (CPRI) for multinational corporations, banks and financial institutions. Our greatest strength is the expertise and experience of our people, all of whom are committed to putting our clients’ needs first.

We work closely with clients to structure insurance programmes for those engaged in international trade, investment and lending. With the largest broking team in the CPRI market, an annual premium volume of approximately US$400 million, and a market share close to 20%, we are the leading broker in CPRI.

We are proud to be employee-owned which provides continuity for our teams and our clients, allowing us to build long-term relationships. 

Our company was founded in 1983 when the CPRI market was in its infancy. Over the past 35 years, we have developed in-depth knowledge and expertise of our market and product, enabling us to provide high quality advice and tailored solutions for our clients. We believe we are the broker of choice not just for our clients, but that insurers also value the professionalism and breadth of experience we bring to each transaction.

As an insurance broker, we act exclusively for our clients as their agent. We do not act for insurers. We allow our clients to fix our remuneration, which is typically standard brokerage. We take no additional payments or commissions from insurers for the services we provide to them while acting for policyholders.

Our global network ensures we can provide services for our clients worldwide from our offices in London, New York, Paris, Geneva, Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai.
