The deposits from banks concerns credits held by Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau, Germany and Landwirtschaftliche Rentenbanken, Germany for interest-subsidised loans in the renewable energy sector.

Triodos Bank entered into TLTROIII (hereafter ‘TLTRO’) funding with the ECB, with an early repayment option on 23 June 2022. The interest rate on the TLTRO depends on the lending volumes granted to corporates (excluding financial institutions) and households (excluding mortgages).

The interest rate applied on all TLTRO operations outstanding will be 50 basis points below the average interest rate on the deposit facility prevailing over the same period, and in any case not higher than -1%, if lending conditions under the program are met. The lending condition is met if Triodos Bank shows growth in its lending volumes equal to or above 0% in two periods. The period is between 1 March 2020 and 31 March 2021 and the second period between 1 October 2020 and 31 December 2021. Triodos Bank met the conditions in both periods. The interest rate for the first period is applied between 24 June 2020 and 23 June 2021 and for the second period between 24 June 2021 and 23 June 2022. In subsequent years the interest will be between the Deposit Facility and Main Refinancing Operations interest rates, depending to what lending growth conditions Triodos Bank meets within the TLTRO program.

In 2021 Triodos Bank realised a successful placement of a subordinated Green Bond. The Green Bond has a nominal value of EUR 250 million, a tenor of 10.25 years, and a coupon of 2.25% for the first five and a quarter years after which there is an option to early redeem the bond. If the bond is not early redeemed, the interest rate is reset to maturity at 2.4% above the annual Euro mid swap rate. The Green Bond has been placed below nominal value at 99.497%. The placement of the Green Bond results in an increase of the Tier 2 Capital which is a diversification of the Total Capital of Triodos Bank.

The Green Bond has been issued taking into account the ICMA Green Bond Principles, Climate Bond Initiative Standards and the EU Taxonomy recommendations. It has been assessed by a Second Party Opinion as best market practice on all components. This confirms Triodos Bank’s ambition to ‘change finance, by financing change’ and underlines its position as frontrunner in sustainable banking.

In 2019 a managed investment fund sold an investment, for which a management fee was received. The sale has been marked, in retrospect, for a fiscal claim and therefore part of the management fee might need to be repaid in the amount of EUR 2.3 million, for which a provision was formed. Further provisions have been formed regarding employee benefits and claims.

An amount of EUR 3.2 million (2020: EUR 4.1million) can be classified as shorter than one year.
