Airfinance Journal: Aircraft lease securitisation (Sponsored by TMF Group)

Presented by

Eric Blau, Kevin Butler, Weili Chen, Drew Fine and Johnny Lau

About this talk

Securitisation can be viewed as a financing tool or a mechanism for selling aircraft lease portfolios. Since the 1990s aircraft asset-backed securitisation has become a common financial practice. While securitisation has thrived in the US and Europe, securitisation market for Asian issuers has been underdeveloped until the first Asian aircraft securitisation took place in 2015. Will securitisation gradually become a dominant investment tool in the Asia-Pacific aviation industry? 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. This one-hour webinar will bring together industry professionals to examine the transaction structure of aircraft asset-backed securitisations, discuss the corresponding benefits and concerns and identify the associated business opportunities. Key discussion questions: •Would further aircraft lease securitisation activity be a sensible choice for Asian aircraft leasing companies? •How does asset composition, so the inclusion of new, mid-life and older aircraft, and commercial and regional aircraft affect securitisation transaction execution? •What are the legal concerns when we structure securitisation transactions in Asia? Specifically, how would risk retention rules facilitate the transactions?
