Continual growth in a challenging market
Global competition and exceptionally high cyclicality characterise the shipping industry like no other. Of major significance for the development of the industry is the high capital intensity, which in particular requires support by experienced and reliable financial partners.
For over 45 years, NORD/LB has developed the Ship Financing business segment into a strategic core segment. Over the long tradition of our engagement for the maritime industry, we have grown through the cycles into one of the leading global ship financers. With a total financing volume of EUR 17,9 billion (Exposure at Default (Ead) / NORD/LB-Group incl. Bremer Landesbank, as at 30 June 2016), we underline our presence and market penetration over the long term.
Competency from one source
The challenges due to cyclicality, however, also require a constant willingness to adjust and innovate on the financing side. Not only our many years of experience, but also our drive to pursue new financing paths with our customers support us in the process. This willingness is complemented by an extensive range of additional services, which allows us to offer holistic competency around the globe from one source. Solution expertise in all matters related to ships and corporate activity in long-term relationships guide our understanding in business with the maritime economy.
