Land Transport Finance – Portfolio

Thanks to its globally-unique product platform, our Land Transport Finance division is constantly active in Europe, North America, and Australia. We fully appreciate the increasing maturity of our markets – whilst recognising the growing cyclicality of the sector segments. Due to our research, we are able to better assess these developments. Thanks to this special sector expertise, we can reliably bridge the gap between financing providers and the market, even during times of economic uncertainty. Our clearly defined asset finance set-up, and our cycle-neutral strategy, have yielded good results over the past years.

Customer lending in the Land Transport Finance division totalled €1.6 billion as at 31 Dec 2016 (31 December 2015: €1.7 billion). The portfolio is broadly diversified by the type of transport asset, region, borrower, and manufacturer. In line with our strategy, financings of new and used freight cars account for the largest share of or portfolio. Thanks to their granularity, freight cars are an asset class with an excellent risk profile and a high degree of intrinsic diversification.
