WIBank, which comes under Helaba’s Public Development and Infrastructure Business unit, supports development programmes for the State of Hesse. We also engage in many areas of public life by sponsoring ground-breaking cultural, educational, environmental, sports and social projects.
Do you have a pool of receivables you would like to exploit for financing?
Then let us structure a suitable asset-backed financing or forfaiting model for you.
As this type of finance is based on your receivables, it enables you to expand your sources of liquidity and preserve your creditlines. The receivables themselves are the basis for procuring funds, making this an optimum form of refinancing in which the maturities are matched.
In addition, you can
- Improve your key balance sheet indicators
- Reduce the size of your balance sheet (especially IFRS and HGB off-balance sheet structures)
- Reduce the size of your current assets
ABS transactions, which we arrange entirely in accordance with your requirements, involve us purchasing receivables, providing liquidity lines and guaranteeing subordinated loans to improve the rating of primary tranches.
We have experience of a wide range of asset classes, for example
- Trade receivables
- Vehicle finance contracts
- Leasing of machinery and equipment
We can securitise your short term assets, finance them through our own balance sheet or engage our special purpose vehicle (conduit) Opusalpha. In addition to portfolios of receivables, we can also purchase individual receivables.
