WindEnergy Exhibition 2018 – Great Success for North Channel Bank
Close cooperation with green[::]match as a unique selling point in financing renewable energy projects: seamless financing from the early phase up to long-term financing and investor sourcing.
North Channel Bank generated great visitor interest at the WindEnergy exhibition. During this most important event for the global wind industry, the bank conducted numerous discussions with potential new customers on the joint booth with its cooperation partner green[::]match. “We are very pleased with the response at the exhibition and already have a number of new projects in our pipeline,” says Harald Zenke, Managing Director of North Channel Bank. “Visitors were particularly positive about our unique selling position regarding our close cooperation with green[::]match. We as “enablers” in the early phase of renewable energy projects and the financial facilitator green[::]match with the marketplace for the seamless subsequent long-term financing and investor sourcing.”
International Platform with Great Potential
WindEnergy, the world’s leading exhibition for onshore and offshore wind energy, attracted 1482 exhibitors from 40 countries. With 35,000 visitors from 100 countries, it was just as well attended as two years ago. “This event offers an excellent platform for presenting new products and initiating new projects,” said Zenke. “As far as developments in this sector continue, we are confident about its future and will certainly be represented at the next WindEnergy as an exhibitor.”
North Channel Bank GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1924 as the privately owned bank Bankhaus Oswald Kruber, located in Berlin. In 2009, a group of North American investors with expertise in the US Life Settlement sector acquired the bank and renamed it North Channel Bank. In the following years the bank developed into one of the leading institutes in US Life Settlement financing. 2013 with the takeover of its affiliate NorthStar Life Services, LLC, Irvine, California the bank gained direct access to and influence on a reliable, experienced and renowned service provider. Today, in addition to financing, the bank also offers investments in US Life Settlements. In the structured finance division the bank focuses in particular on financing in the renewable energies sector, (especially equity interim financing), capital goods financing, and acquisition finance.
