Treasury Management at the Sächsische Aufbaubank – Förderbank – (SAB) is responsible for managing assets and liabilities and liquidity, including cash investment and refinancing. To fulfil these tasks, the SAB acts as a business partner in the money and capital markets in accordance with the provisions of "Verständigung II" between the EU Commission and the German federal government.
- Money-market transactions
- Derivative transactions
- Securities transactions
- Refinancing through promissory note loans, registered bonds and bearer bonds
Money-market transactions are concluded as part of the SAB’s liquidity management. They include investment and borrowing in the form of overnight and fixed-term deposits, and acquiring commercial papers.
Derivative transactions are concluded only for hedging purposes or to manage interest-rate risks on individual items on the balance sheet (micro-hedges) or on all items (macro-hedges).
Securities transactions are primarily concluded to manage regulatory liquidity requirements. A buy-and-hold approach is employed for acquiring securities in line with the SAB’s status as a non-trading entity. Only fixed- and variable-rate securities denominated in euros are acquired.
The SAB refinances itself by borrowing funds from national and international development banks, as well as by issuing promissory note loans, registered bonds and bearer bonds on the capital markets. Up-to-date information is available from Thomson Reuters/Bloomberg (page: SABF).
Guarantee by the Free State of Saxony

Pursuant to § Section 5 (4), the Free State of Saxony is explicitly liable for loans taken on by the Bank, bonds issued by the Bank, forward transactions structured as fixed-term transactions, rights from options and other credits to the Bank, as well as credits expressly guaranteed by the Bank.
Zero solvency weighting

The SAB and its guarantor, the Free State of Saxony, have been rated “AAA/A-1+” by the Standard & Poor’s ratings agency.
