A different approach

Whether you're a commercial airline, a lessor needing innovative financing solutions or an investor looking for aviation products we have the right solutions for you.


Aviation lending and leasing

We provide lending solutions across the capital stack as well as taking residual value positions in aircraft and providing recourse/non-recourse options to airlines and lessors. Our operating lease solutions to airlines meet fleet financing needs, including vanilla operating leases as well as highly structured solutions.

Bespoke funding solutions

Whether it’s an A380 operating lease delivery financing, a regional aircraft portfolio facility or a mezzanine opportunity, we can tailor bespoke solutions to your needs. Our flexible, fast-moving and solution-driven team delivers Out of the Ordinary service.

Fund and asset management

As a leading aircraft specialist fund manager, our aircraft debt and equity funds under management provide institutional partners with access to aircraft as an asset class, across both aviation debt and aircraft leasing. We can tailor products to meet investors’ risk/return preferences.
