SaarLB – the partner you can count on for professional real estate financing in Germany and France

 If you want to be successful in the market, you have to know your markets. “At home in both markets” – this has been our official motto since 2007. And by “both markets” we mean Germany and France.

Thanks to its many years of experience and profound understanding of the two real estate markets, SaarLB serves in the best sense as a financial bridge connecting the two countries, true to its role as The Franco-German Regional Bank.

Aside from the state of Saarland, our target markets include the Rhineland Palatinate area and adjacent regions of Hessen and Baden-Württemberg. Across the French border, our real estate activities centre on the Grand Est and Ile-de-France industrial centres.

Our many years of experience in the French market is key to the Bank’s success on both sides of the border. As a Franco-German regional bank, SaarLB is in a league of its own not only among public-sector banks but also German commercial banks. This is documented by the fact that it is the only German bank which, as a German legal entity, holds a French bank license.

We help German and French real estate investors with their project planning – whether in their home market or across the border.

What makes us strong are our

  • many years of experience in our neighbouring market
  • familiarity with and acceptance of French legal norms
  • knowledge of the customary business practices in both countries and understanding of the cultural differences
  • employees, who have either been raised speaking both languages or have acquired a proficiency in French.
