More promotional loans for agriculture and rural areas, capital ratios further increased

Frankfurt. In the first half of 2019, Rentenbank granted special promotional loans in the amount of EUR 3.2 billion (EUR 3.3 billion in the first half of 2018).

Total new business in special promotional loans and in the form of registered bonds, promissory notes, and securities with a link to rural areas increased to EUR 5.8 billion in the first half of 2019.

Rentenbank awards more promotional loans for agribusiness and rural development - wind power remains sluggish

Frankfurt. 2018 saw Rentenbank’s new promotional business drop when compared with the prior-year level. The main reason for this was a sharp decline in wind power financing resulting from a change to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). New business was virtually stable in the Agriculture promotional line, while it rose in the Agribusiness and Rural Development promotional lines. The Management Board of Germany’s development agency for agribusiness and rural areas was pleased with the results overall. ‘The 2018 business year has shown that Rentenbank’s promotional loans continue to be attractive for all types of investment in agriculture and rural areas,’ underlined Horst Reinhardt, Chairman of the Management Board at Rentenbank.

Fiscal Year 2018: Sluggish wind power financings trigger lower demand for promotional loans from Rentenbank

Frankfurt. In 2018, Landwirtschaftliche Rentenbank saw falling demand for its special promotional loans, albeit from the high level registered in the previous year. This decrease was attributable to a sharp decline in wind power financings set off by an amendment to the German Renewable Energy Sources Act. The decline could only partially be compensated for by growth in the Agribusiness and Rural Development promotional lines. New business in the Agriculture promotional line remained largely stable. Overall, new business with special promotional loans from Germany's development agency for agribusiness and rural areas dropped to a total of EUR 6.7 billion (2017: EUR 7.4 billion).
