UW/H continues to grow to almost 2500 students. A larger percentage of the newly enrolled students opt for payment after graduation provided for in the inverse contract between student generations. This is why the SG registers an emerging financial gap.

More funds are needed to bridge the gap between pre-financing tuition fees to the university and receiving payments from the graduates. The StudierendenGesellschaft issues a first bond with a volume of € 7.5 million, a term of 10 years and a fixed annual rate of 3.6 %. The bond is traded in the open market of the Düsseldorf stock exchange (WKN/ISIN A12UD9/DE000A12UD98), issue of consecutive bonds is scheduled every three or four years.
