18th annual PFR deals and firms of the year

KeyBanc Capital Markets® is the 2021 winner of PFR's Renewables Lead Arranger of the Year, carving out a niche as a top name in renewables investment banking since first starting to invest in the space in 2007. Since 2010, the group has financed over $15 billion of renewables transactions.

 

Tremendous growth in renewables spawns a greener middle market

From 2010 to 2019, investment in renewable energy soared to $2.6 trillion, triple the amount invested in the previous decade, and the sector is poised to continue growing at a rapid pace, according to BloombergNEF.

High note at end of 2021 muted by inflation, supply chain, and labor challenges

It appears that 2021 is ending better than it started – or that’s how it feels for most middle market executives. However, it’s not as simple as it seems on the surface. A complicated business environment defined by supply chain disruption and rising inflation has put a damper on the unhampered highs executives were feeling at midyear.

Agribusiness technologies and financing

For millennia, farmers have been remarkably resourceful and resilient in overcoming ecological perils that threaten their livelihood. Now they face environmental challenges far greater than flood, drought, and pestilence. In addition, they must contend with volatile market conditions that were inconceivable to their ancestors. But as new agricultural trends and technologies emerge and evolve, so do new funding solutions. Could this be the ideal time for agribusiness to innovate and create sustainable growth?

Innovative food and beverage financing

More than ever before, food and beverage companies must reevaluate their business models and invest in new technologies to grow and stay competitive.

Energy efficiency strategies for hospitals

While hospitals today recognize the need to reduce their environmental footprint and prioritize energy efficiency initiatives, many find it difficult to mobilize an actionable plan.

A lucrative look at your lighting cost

Inefficient lighting can represent a huge part of monthly energy bills. So if tight budgets are impeding your business progress, you’ll find cost savings by switching to LED technology.
