German investors launch container leasing bond plan

The Hamburg-based company, Buss Capital Invest has announced the launch of its first registered bond in the container leasing field.

With the “Interest 2021” offer, private investors can benefit from the currently favourable entry conditions in the container leasing market, according to the German investor, who said in its announcement that "Own participation and control of the use of funds ensure that the interests of investors, issuing house and asset manager are aligned."

Buss Capital Invest has noted that the interest rate is 4% pa, the term 2.5 to 3 years and five months, while the participation is possible from €10,000 euros (US$11,670) and the interest is paid quarterly.

“The market situation in container leasing is very interesting at the moment - especially because of the corona crisis. Container throughput is growing again - and with it the demand for containers. At the same time, very little was built due to the corona crisis in 2020. So increasing demand meets a shortage of supply," commented Dirk Baldeweg, managing partner of Buss Capital Invest.

According to Baldeweg, container leasing is a very stable market and relatively crisis-resistant. “Containers are only ordered when they are really needed. The market can therefore react quickly to fluctuations in demand, for example due to the corona crisis. We are currently getting on at a good time,” claimed Baldeweg.

"Investments will be made in container types that have proven to be stable sources of income - and in proven structures," highlighted Marc Nagel, managing director of Buss Capital Invest, who went on to explain, "If the investment does not develop as planned, our own contribution is available first. In addition, external control of the use of funds is carried out over the entire term of the investment. It controls whether the investments are made in accordance with the investment guidelines and whether the funds are correctly returned after the assets have been sold."

He added, "The high level of personal participation and the continuous control of the use of funds are confidence-building measures that set the new concept apart in the market."

The new investment is structured in the form of a subordinated registered bond. With the help of the registered bond, Buss Capital Invest collects money, which is then indirectly invested in portfolios from different containers via currently two target companies. The German investor has placed around €2.5 billion (US$2.9 billion) in previous container investments.
