Helaba successful in Central and Eastern Europe - once again the best bank in Poland for real estate finance in 2018
Helaba was once again named "Best Bank" in Poland for commercial real estate finance.
Die Helaba wurde zum wiederholten Mal als “Beste Bank“ in Polen für gewerbliche Immobilienfinanzierungen ausgezeichnet.
The annual "Euromoney - Real Estate" magazine awards are based on a global survey of more than 20,000 financing professionals, including consultants, project developers, investment managers, corporate end users and bank employees. In addition to the overarching award, Helaba was also successful in the category of "Real Estate Finance Poland". Michael Kröger, Head of International Real Estate Lending at Helaba, said: "We are delighted to once again receive this award. This recognition motivates us and shows that we are on the right track with our strategy."
In its capacity as agent, Helaba recently arranged the financing of four office properties in Poland together with another bank. In total, it provided a loan in an amount of 100 million euros with a term of seven years. "With this transaction, Helaba has expanded its long-standing business relationship with the customer to include the segment of office properties. At the same time, we have strengthened our very good portfolio in the strong Polish market," explains Georg Blaschke, who has been responsible for the Polish market within Helaba's International Real Estate Lending business for many years.
