In the recent past, infrastructure projects were financed by the capital market and through project financing with the European Investment Bank. Between 2005 and the end of 2016, ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG issued bonds on the capital market and established itself on the financial market as a reliable partner for risk-conscious investors. In 2017, in coordination with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Finance and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology, ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG was given the opportunity to arrange financing through the Austrian Federal Financing Agency. All of ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG’s existing bonds and their guarantees provided by the Republic of Austria remain unaffected by ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG expanding its financing instruments in this way. This means that in addition to project financing via the European Investment Bank, ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG also has access to financing through the Austrian Federal Financing Agency.
