Strong and seasoned expertise in the aviation sector

It has been a challenging period for the aviation sector. The market has always been fluid and designing structures and executing loans and leases can be anything from straightforward to extremely complex to everything in between. But now, more than ever, there’s a need and desire for revisit the optimum way to get things done when buying or leasing movable assets.

Whether it’s transactions supported by credit, sale and leasebacks or pre-delivery financing or dealing with accessing capital markets, fractional interest programs, securities, tax, litigation, restructuring, compliance, and regulatory matters, you can very quickly have your hands full.

Lessors and financiers need to ensure that the interests of the noteholders and secured creditors are appropriately represented and that they have the capabilities to administer transactions efficiently, across the structures, the fund flow and operational activities of the deal.

As experts in all aviation financing and leasing market sectors, our team of more than 4,000 employees across the globe can provide full life-cycle solutions to large aviation finance and leasing transactions across multiple jurisdictions. Our full range of trustee, administration, accounting, and reporting services cover all types of structures used in aircraft finance, securitisation, corporate debt finding, holding companies and cross border structures and we can help to ensure both seamless execution and ongoing management.

GATS Trustee

In 2020, the Global Aircraft Trading System (GATS) was launched to revolutionise the trading and financing of aircraft equipment. The digital trading platform reduces the inefficiencies and burdens on lessees, lessors and financiers, leading to a fully electronic and therefore smoother trading process.

We’re authorised by the Aviation Working Group (AWG) to act as trustee service provider for GATS in both Ireland and Singapore, two of our strategic hubs for aviation finance. Created by AWG to streamline the trading and financing of leased aircraft equipment, GATS reduces the burdens on lessees, lessors and financiers by using advanced technology to streamline standardisation of form documents. Our GATS trustee license strengthens our strong track record in the aircraft sector, providing security trustee services to many of the major lessors, airlines and banks globally.
