Financing

The market for sustainable financing is undergoing explosive growth. What opportunities does this offer you as a financier or entrepreneur? After 2021 using LIBOR as the basis for determining interest rates will probably cease. What will be the alternative? EURIBOR will probably continue to exist as benchmark despite the fact that another interest calculation method will be used. What will be the impact on your organisation’s loans?

Real estate financing

The major Dutch banks increasingly cease to make real estate financing available and tighten their lending conditions. As a consequence alternative and foreign lenders are taken into consideration in the Dutch market. What are the key concerns for loans from alternative or foreign lenders? Which practical problems do you face when dealing with such lenders?
