|The KfW Group |
Providing Support through Banking Expertise.
The KfW Group gives impulses for the economy, society and ecology in Germany, Europe and the world over. It supports change and promotes promising ideas.
What we do we do as professionally as possible and at the lowest possible cost: in the promotion of SMEs, in home finance or housing modernization, in the protection of the environment and the climate, in Export and Project Finance or in the promotion of the developing and transition countries.
We constantly adapt ourselves to changing markets. We use our knowledge of the market and our close relations to our customers to develop innovative products for the needs of tomorrow. Our work does not affect competition among banks - to the benefit of our partners be they banks or customers. Thus we have become a strategic partner of the economy and of politics. With out offers to private individuals we have reached new target groups.
As a bank owned by the federal government (80%) and the Länder (20%) we have a strong backbone. Our official promotional mission is anchored in the KfW law. For more than 50 years we have proven to be an efficient promotional bank.We raise the majority of our funds on the capital market. The fruit of our work flows back into our promotional activities and ensures our potential to provide support in the long term. Meanwhile we are one of the ten biggest banks in Germany with a balance sheet total of more than EUR 250 billion.
