Syndication

Clients' requirements regarding their financing partners' syndication skills have risen considerably. Hence, over the past few years Aareal Bank has systematically built up its expertise, growing its network for syndicated deals.


Our syndication competence provides customers with genuine added value

”Competence and experience in syndicating are becoming all the more critical for success in our market" says Christian Schmid, Managing Director Business & Syndication Management at Aareal Bank. "The arrangement of a resilient and established syndication network has become increasingly important to be in the position to offer our clients maximum flexibility."

That is only positive for us because we are good at meeting the increased demands on syndication competence. Christian Schmid Managing Director Business & Syndication Management

Schmid welcomes this trend: "That is only positive for us because we are good at meeting the increased demands on syndication competence. Our syndication team has many years of expertise as well as intensive and complex contacts to well­-known syndication partners from various sectors. The transactions agreed in 2016 with Invesco Real Estate, Cégereal and Périsud show this. Over the last few years we have been able to strengthen our relationships through high­-volume financing and by continuously involving our contacts in on­-going transactions, particularly in the insurance area. We expect an enhancement of our syndication competence and related processes from the strategic partnership we have just concluded with London­-based Mount Street, a corporation specialised in servicing and credit management of commercial and residential property portfolios in particular."

Interview with Christian Schmid

Schmid says: "Customers profit from our syndication com­petence in two ways. Firstly we are a one­-stop contact that structures the transaction and then takes on the syndication. Secondly, we are the interface to the syndication partner so that the clients can look after their core business. We offer our clients genuine added value and increase their agility and flexibility."
