As a competent lead manager, RBI is ideally positioned to support national and international issuers and investors.

Bonds and Schuldscheine lead-managed by RBI

  • Syndicated Loans
    RBI has been a leading arranger of syndicated loans in Austria and Central and Eastern Europe for years. Our international syndication experts have the experience and a broad-based worldwide network of investor contacts to ensure optimal success for our customers.
  • Schuldschein
    RBI is an experienced arranger of Schuldscheins issued by national and international borrowers. Our activities in the Schuldschein market are placement driven. The Schuldschein enables issuers to tap an alternative investor base. Moreover, documentation and disclosure requirements are less strict than with public bond issues.
