„Pfandbriefe, are they worth it?” Yes indeed! “And how do Pfandbriefe currently yield?”

Since their low of around -0.5% in August 2021, Pfandbrief yields have risen by around 4%-points depending on maturity to currently just over 3.5%. You can check this development, which is crucial for all investors, free of charge on .

The digital successor to the long-standing flagship brochure of the German Pfandbrief banks has now been online as an industry platform for five years. Published by the Association of German Pfandbrief Banks, conceived by experts and made for a wide range of recipients, it provides, among other, issuer profiles with key figures and contact information, and current investor presentations. There is also room for commentary on the latest market developments as well as the voices of the “movers and shakers” behind individual benchmark transactions or interviews with institutional investors and high-profile market participants. Important developments in the lending business of Pfandbrief banks are highlighted as well as the further development of the regulatory framework for Pfandbrief issuance or relevant aspects from the field of ESG finance.

The universe of liquid benchmark Pfandbriefe and their risk premiums versus swaps in chart and list form is available at the push of a button, as are current absolute Pfandbrief yields by maturity bands mentioned above.
