Export and Project Finance
Rabobank’s Project Finance team (PF) has a global presence and a strong focus on the renewable energy and infrastructure sectors. We also serve corporate and food and agribusiness (F A) clients. Our Export Finance team (EF) provides export credit solutions for corporate clients (exporters as well as foreign importers) active in any industrial sector.
Renewable Energy Project Finance
The team is responsible for advising, structuring and arranging complex project finance transactions. PF offers different products for the financing of new projects and offers tailor made innovative solutions. The team is a major financier of offshore wind projects, but is also engaged in onshore wind, solar (including Concentrated Solar Power) and biomass projects.
Infrastructure Project Finance
The financing of infrastructure projects covers multiple disciplines with complex financing structures. Rabobank is able to generate added value by its capabilities through the whole spectrum of financing, from financial advisory to (subordinated) debt arranging participation. PF successfully supported several core clients both in the Netherlands and internationally including Public Private Partnerships (PPP), oil and gas storage, telecom infrastructure and Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading Vessels (FPSOs).
Food and Agribusiness (F A) Project Finance
Through corporate and business banking divisions, Rabobank has been providing customised lending and financial services in the various food and agribusiness sectors around the world for many years. PF finances projects of Rabobank’s F A clients. Projects eligible for project finance solutions can be found in waste-to-energy recycling, processing industry, warehouse storage facilities and projects with a clear renewable energy association.
Rabobank Export Finance finances the exports of capital goods and services exports to emerging countries. The relevant credit risks, being commercial and political risks, are covered by the government supported Export Credit Agency (ECA) in the country of the exporter. The key sectors in which Export Finance is active include marine offshore, food agribusiness, technology, construction, food processing and dairy. The main products provided are the financing of capital goods (buyer credit/supplier credits), advance payments, performance- guarantees, and working capital. Some of the main advantages that Rabobank Export Finance has to offer are the longer tenors (up to 12 years post construction), its competitive pricing, and covenants and security is usually less restrictive compared to corporate facilities.
