The growing need to replace ageing infrastructure, upgrade transportation and improve energy efficiency is spurring a need for private financing through the debt markets. Larger projects with complex finance structures require an experienced partner to coordinate and manage the multitude of administrative requirements through the transaction lifecycle. Deutsche Bank’s project finance team provides end-to-end solutions direct to its clients and through project construction, operational and end of lifecycle stages.

The challenge

The range of asset classes, structures and creditors active in the infrastructure and energy finance space has grown over time. Investors may prefer not to administer the debt financing due to conflicts of interest, or may be restricted due to regulatory requirements or they may not have the ability or appetite to provide such services. This requires an experienced provider to deliver an end to end solution and eliminate concerns around conflicts of interest.

The solution

Deutsche Bank provides administrative services to project, acquisition, corporate and other financing across the infrastructure and energy markets. As a trustee and/or agent, we monitor the terms of financing agreements, hold and safe-keep collateral for the benefit of secured creditors, monitor transaction reporting and covenant compliance requirements, communicate with investors, maintain project accounts and administer cash flows.

Deutsche Bank can support the complete administration of each transaction, offering an award winning service via a team of specialist project finance experts, freeing the deal team from day-to-day oversight of the project.

DB Advantage

– Expertise – The Deutsche Bank team has decades of experience in providing administrative services to project finance, infrastructure and energy transactions across public and private markets. For example, as agent in the construction phase, we release payments against certified completion of work and as account bank during the operational phase, we manage cash accounts, payments and reserve balances.

– A solution oriented approach – We work with our clients to align our offering with their needs. This includes many aspects including customised reporting for different needs of sponsors, creditors and/or investors, covenant monitoring on our clients’ behalf for compliance with project documents, and customised payment waterfalls in line with transaction documents.

– Responsiveness – Capitalising on the team’s extensive experience and global reach, we provide a proactive approach and help identify any issues and work with clients to resolve potential problems.
