Success for our clients

The ”North Star” transaction was a good example of our structuring expertise: with a volume of € 630 million, this transaction was not only one of the largest syndicated loans provided by banks and institutional investors in Europe – it was one of the largest financings to date extended by a German insurance company in this market segment. Yet structuring this loan was particularly challenging – not least given the different requirements of the partners involved, in terms of regulatory issues, the funding base, and the collateralisation concept. Nonetheless, we completed this complex, cross-border transaction within just three months.

Flexibility and extensive expertise were also critical for the ”Prime Europe Hotels” project, a cross-border financing of four premium hotels in prime locations. Specifically, the project included a complex collateralisation structure covering three different jurisdictions as well as an extensive renovation programme designed to further enhance the quality, long-term profitability, and competitiveness of the hotels. All this called for our extensive structuring expertise.

Aareal Bank also demonstrated efficiency, speed, and structuring expertise with the tailor-made financing for the ”Noda” office building in Issy-les-Moulineaux (Paris first ring). We provided the financing within a very short period of time, syndicating a part of the facility to a renowned German bank after closing the transaction – once again showcasing the quality of the financing and Aareal Bank’s placement power as a syndicating bank.
