Key promotional area: Global loans to the promotional institutions of the federal states – business sector Kommunal- und Privatkundenbank/ Kreditinstitute (Municipal and Private Client Bank/Credit Institutions)

Global loan portfolio for all promotional segments

KfW has successfully cooperated with the promotional institutions of the federal states (Landesförderinstitute – “LFIs”) for years. Cooperation with the LFIs focuses firstly on granting programme-related global loans and secondly on general funding. The programme-related global loans serve to fund the LFIs' promotional loans in the SME, housing and infrastructure segments based on the relevant KfW products. This results in particularly favourable financing terms for borrowers, as financial support from KfW and the Federal Government is linked to that of the LFIs and federal states.
