Helaba is part of the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe (Savings Bank Finance Group) and our services are specifically designed to promote the business of savings banks. Savings banks are unrivalled when it comes to serving local markets: You know the precise needs of your corporate clients and what matters to them. This has resulted in the evolution of a strong partnership.
Locally, your savings bank is in a class of its own. But what about when it comes to financing major transactions? Or meeting special customer requests? In these cases, your savings bank and Helaba can jointly provide all the products and services that you really need. At the same time, we keep risks firmly under control - in international business, too. Financing foreign trade or projects, designing promotional loans, issuing guarantees, structuring payment transactions: We support the savings banks and their corporate clients with reliability and commitment.
Helaba is a partner and service provider for 40 percent of German savings banks. We are the central clearing institution for savings banks in Hesse, Thuringia, North Rhine-Westphalia and Brandenburg. We always act according to the principle of "partnership instead of competition". We support and supplement the services of the S-Group and only do what we are really good at.
For decades, these strong ties have led to the growth of a close cooperation. Many savings banks throughout Germany rely on our structured financing solutions.
But how does it work in practice? One of many examples is the Hausfirste wind farm in Kaufunger Wald. It is able to provide clean energy to more than 26,000 households. And the financing for this Entega project was arranged in a club deal by Helaba - together with three local savings banks.
