Guaranteed loan for Sint Franciscus hospital is a litmus test for the sector
Sint Franciscus Gasthuis (SFG) is a Rotterdam hospital that is financing a major renovation with a EUR 50 million loan.
Zanders assisted SFG in this complex process. It was complex because of the difficult economic climate, because of legislation and, last but not least, because of the use of a structured product new to the healthcare sector: a risky roll-over loan combined with risk-curtailing derivatives. But the loan will be guaranteed by the Healthcare Sector Guarantee Fund, or WfZ. This really is something new.
