As the aviation finance market continues to evolve, combined with continued favourable interest rates, aircraft asset-backed securitisation is becoming increasingly attractive as an investment option for financing portfolios of leases and loans relating to aircraft and aircraft engines.

•What are the legal concerns when we structure securitisation transactions in Asia? Specifically, how would risk retention rules facilitate the transactions?
