aktivierbar - can be capitalized / capitalizable


Explanation:
That would be my guess, assuming that "Eigenl" stands for Eigenleistung and "Anlagev." stands for Anlagevermögen.

aktivieren
(ReW) to capitalize
– to recognize/carry . . . as an asset
– to charge to capital
(opp, als Periodenaufwand verbuchen = to expense)Eigenleistung f
(Fin) borrower's own funding
Anlagevermögen n
(ReW) fixed assets
(ie, intended for use on a continuing basis for the purpose of an undertaking's activities; Unterbegriffe nach § 266 HGB: Immaterielle Vermögensgegenstände = intangible assets; Sachanlagen = tangible assets; Finanzanlagen = financial assets; opp, Umlaufvermögen: current assets)
[Schäfer]

Per Zahn, Bank- & Börsenwesen, aktiverungsfähig - capitalizable

A Google search on "aktivierbar +Anlagevermögen" will bring up quite a few relevant sites, for instance:
[PDF] www.wiwi.uni-regensburg.de/dowling/files/ent_ws00-01/ENT-21...
EINZELUNTERNEHMEN 1 I. RECHTSGRUNDLAGEN * Pflicht ... Es sind das Anlagevermögen, das Umlaufvermögen, das ... nehmen, zum Teil aktivierbar.
