As one of the world’s leading ship financiers, we help to preserve the innovative power of maritime enterprises.

We finance maritime vessels with European technology worldwide, including the bulk of projects realised at German and European shipyards: investments by cargo shipping companies, offshore exploration and production and passenger shipping.

In this way KfW IPEX-Bank supports family-owned enterprises and listed corporates that are world leaders in their industry, as well as their suppliers.

KfW IPEX-Bank is Germany’s leading ship financier and among the top ten in the world.


„We experience again and again how successful a common approach of suppliers, yards and financial institutions is with regard to their customers. In a complex world, comprehensive offerings of a national maritime cluster make live easier for global buyers.

GeMaX, supported by the innovative skills and experiences of the cluster, brings us an important step further to what many in the global marketplace are expecting.“
