frankfurt The situation in German corporate debt has worsened since the beginning of the year. Between December 2021 and the end of March, the average interest rate on five-year loans rose from 1.45 percent to 2.65 percent — an increase of nearly 80 percent.
This is shown by a study conducted by fintech tailors, experts in digital financing for small and medium-sized enterprises, prepared for the newspaper Handelsblatt. Taylor was supported by analysis house Barco Consulting.
The sharp rise occurred in two jumps of historical proportions: Between December 19 and February 11, interest rates rose 0.78 percentage points. There was another increase of 0.78 percentage points in March after interest rates fell slightly.
