Rentenbank reports its activities under the following three business segments: Promotional Business, Capital
Investment and Treasury Management. For the financial year ended 31 December 2014 (FYE December
2014), the largest contributor to the bank’s net interest income was the Promotional Business segment. 1
Promotional Business: This segment, which in FYE December 2014 accounted for 59.3% of the bank’s net
interest income, includes the special and standard promotional lending, the securitised lending businesses
(excluding capital investment transactions), and the funding of the bank and its subsidiaries. The
promotional business is primarily conducted with other banks, which pass the loans through to the ultimate
borrowers in the agricultural sector. A small proportion of the bank’s promotional business is conducted
with German federal states. As of 31 December 2014, this segment reported an asset base of €79.5 billion.
Capital Investment: Accounting for 35.1% of the bank’s net interest income in FYE December 2014, this
segment covers the bank’s investment of balance sheet equity and long-term provisions in medium- to
long-term securities, promotional loans and the bank’s direct shareholdings. As of 31 December 2014, this
segment reported an asset base of €3.9 billion.
Treasury Management: This segment includes the results of the bank’s short-term liquidity and short-term
interest rate risk-management activities, covering transactions with a fixed interest period of up to one year,
such as overnight and term deposits, euro commercial papers and floating-rate assets and liabilities
(including swapped positions). As of 31 December 2014, this segment reported an asset base of €5.4 billion,
and accounted for 5.6% of the bank’s net interest income in FYE December 2014.

Distribution Capacity and Market Share
Rentenbank, the third-largest development agency in the FRG, operates solely through its head office in
Frankfurt, without a branch network. In order to comply with its obligation not to engage in direct
competition with commercial banks, Rentenbank distributes loans primarily through the eventual
borrower’s house bank. The bank’s business activities are confined to EU countries and OECD countries.
Geographically, the loans and advances of the bank are distributed as follows:

Notes: 1) “Loans and Advances” includes “Loans and advances to banks” and “Loans and advances to customers”
2) OECD countries contributed negligibly to Loans and Advances.
The funds for refinancing of promotional lending are raised through borrowings or the issuance of securities
on domestic and international capital markets. As for the bank’s international funding activities, two of its
major initiatives are the €60 billion Euro Medium-Term Note (EMTN) programme and the €20 billion Euro
Commercial Paper (ECP) programme. In 2014, the Rentenbank’s most important issuance currency was the
US dollar, which accounted for 41% of its issuance volume, followed by the euro (27%) and the Australian
dollar (14%). In 2014, the bank was the third-largest foreign issuer within Australia’s bond market.

Ownership and Structure
Although Rentenbank was established as a public law institution, it is not directly owned by the FRG (its
capital was raised by the agricultural and forestry sectors in Germany between 1949 and 1958), and has no
shareholders. However, the German federal government exercises legal supervision through the federal
ministry of food and agriculture, which makes its decisions in concert with the federal ministry of finance.
On 4 November 2014, the ECB took over banking supervision from the BaFin.
In 2013, the German parliament Deutscher Bundestag decided to add an explicit and unconditional
refinancing guarantee of the federal republic to the Governing Law of Landwirtschaftliche Rentenbank,
covering all existing and future obligations of Rentenbank. The explicit government guarantee came into
effect on 1 January 2014 and complements the existing institutional liability support (Anstaltslast).

JULY 10, 2015
COMPANY PROFILE: LANDWIRTSCHAFTLICHE RENTENBANK
BANKING
The legal principle of Anstaltslast effectively acts as a guarantee by the FRG. According to the terms of this
obligation, the FRG will: (1) safeguard the economic basis of Rentenbank, (2) ensure that it is able to
conduct operations while it remains a statutory body under public law and (3) in the event of financial
difficulties, enable the bank, by financial contribution or other appropriate means, to perform its obligations,
including covering the bank’s securities or guarantee of any securities wherever a substitute obligor has
replaced Rentenbank.

Company History
Rentenbank originated in 1923 when Deutsche Rentenbank was created in order to combat hyperinflation.
In 1925, the bank was renamed Deutsche Rentenbank-Kreditanstalt (RKA), and it became the central
refinancing institution for the German agricultural sector. In 1949, Rentenbank was established, with the
same responsibilities as its predecessor RKA.
Rentenbank was established as the principal development agency for the agricultural, forestry, fishing and
food industries in Germany. It is a federal public law institution headquartered in Frankfurt am Main,
operating under the legal supervision of the German federal government and banking supervision of the
ECB.
In October 2014, the ECB completed its comprehensive assessment of 130 European banks. Rentenbank
passed the test, reporting a 2016 Common Equity Tier 1 ratio (CET1 ratio) under the baseline scenario of at
least 16.11% (threshold value: 8.0%), and a 2016 CET1 ratio under the adverse scenario of at least 12.89%
(5.5%).
