Eurofin & KFW-IPEX Bank

In June 2008 the major global financier KfW IPEX-Bank appointed Eurofin's Athens office to act as its consultant in its efforts to increase its focus and exposure in the Greek shipping market. Eurofin assists KfW in developing a high quality Greek shipping loan portfolio by providing the bank with ongoing market intelligence on the Greek shipping market, introducing Greek owners to the bank, providing regular updates on the activities of potential Greek clients and identifying ship financing opportunities for the bank.

KfW IPEX-Bank brings together all financial service activities in which KfW Bankengruppe competes with other banks - corporate finance, structured finance, short-term trade finance etc. With a loan portfolio of EUR 62.1 billion, it is a large credit institution operating on a worldwide scale. It's creditworthiness is excellent in comparison with other banks, having a AA- rating from Standard & Poor's and Aa3 from Moody's, which stems chiefly from a solid market position in international project and export finance that was built up successfully on a global scale over fifty years as well as from its strong equity base and close ties to KfW Bankengruppe, which ensure refinancing at market rates at all times.

KfW IPEX-Bank is at present the 5th largest shipping bank in the world, with a shipping portfolio of around US$22.5 Billion and already has some excellent Greek clients.
