      Panel: Debt Financing in Germany: Fund or Bank?

      Despite cheap financing being available, corporates finding banks requirements difficult to deal with are increasing looking for alternative forms of financing. Hedge funds, private equity and high net-worth individuals are stepping in to fill this year as well as new tools. Panelists will discuss the market penetration of debt funds in Germany. Despite the growth of deal flow and market share, are there enough deals? Is it time to have a German only fund?

      Panel: Financial sponsor outlook on Germany

      Financial sponsors operating alongside debt advisors have the benefit of seeing the full spectrum of both bank and fund options before choosing their preferred route. This session will provide an update from private equity investors on trends and outlook in the German LBO market and debt finance. Why do sponsors sometimes take the fund route despite the cheap financing offered by German banks?
