The GRENKE Group on the international capital markets

The international capital markets are of particular significance as part of the GRENKE Group’s refinancing strategy, since they allow for a liquidity supply at attractive conditions.

We utilise the capital markets through issues of instruments such as commercial papers, medium term notes, asset-backed securities, participation certificates. The highly flexible tap issue programmes we have established in various countries and currencies support these measures.


Publishing and sending information material on issued bonds may be interpreted as advertising for these financial instruments. Advice on and sales of GRENKE bonds therefore take place solely via banks and savings banks. Should you have any questions regarding GRENKE bonds, please contact a bank or financial adviser.


Detailed information on the individual financing instruments at GRENKE can be found in the current annual report.
