Siemens Finance Week 2018

Meet the challenges of tomorrow, today

The interlinked challenges of digitization, urbanization and climate change will have profound, long-term effects on all of us. Infrastructure, machinery and energy-generation solutions have to keep pace. This requires significant investments today. And these investments, in turn, need innovative financing solutions.


In February 2018 Siemens Finance Week demonstrated how new and proven financing facilitates the digital transformation and sustainable development and how to meet the challenges of tomorrow, today.


Find out more about this inspiring five-day journey and experience the value of financing.

Digitalization, automation and sustainability evoke large-scale changes in all industries. Financing is becoming an increasingly crucial component of this transformation.

Roland Chalons-Browne, CEO, Siemens Financial Services

What you should know

  • A sustainable future can only be achieved by investing significantly in power generation, electricity distribution, machinery, equipment and software. Specialized financing techniques and a continuing shift toward private-sector involvement are needed to meet these challenges.
  • In this context, financing is a key differentiator. Particularly in developing countries, there is a need for help on the financing side. But even elsewhere, customers increasingly expect technology suppliers not just to provide the kit, but also to participate financially – or at least help mitigate the risk.
  • The trend is moving into the direction of more flexible financing models. And this is just what Siemens Financial Services provides. Through our combination of technology and financing knowledge, we can better assess opportunities and develop tailored solutions.
