Capital market funding to diversify our refinancing structure

In order to strengthen medium and long-term refinancing funds, we have been issuing securities on the capital market for many years. We primarily issue public Pfandbriefe, mortgage Pfandbriefe in benchmark or private placement format, as well as unsecured bonds in benchmark format. Our Green Bonds are used to refinance wind and solar projects in Germany. With our Social Bonds we refinance lending business that generates social added value.

The volume of outstanding DKB bonds on the capital market through the issuance of public and mortgage Pfandbriefe as well as senior unsecured bonds amounts to around EUR 8.4 billion (as of 30 June 2023). Of this, the volume of outstanding Green and Social Bonds amounts to around EUR 3.3 billion (as of 30 June 2023).
