Investec wins Fund of the Year at the 2020 Aviation 100 Global Leaders Awards

The Investec Aviation Debt Funds won Fund of the Year (long term performance) at the 2020 Aviation 100 Global Leaders Awards, hosted by Airline Economics.


Investec, which launched the pioneering aviation debt fund in 2014, has raised three separate debt platforms to date, with approximately US$1bn of committed capital. The platforms have attracted multiple institutional investors, and have achieved their target return consistently every year. The fund covers more than 250 aircraft operated by close to 100 airlines in more than 50 countries.

Investec’s Derek Wong commented:

“This award is a tremendous achievement and great recognition of the ongoing success of Investec’s Aviation Debt Funds and our long-term partnership with our investors.”

“Thanks to an experienced, knowledgeable team, we have been able to consistently originate high-yielding transactions in a competitive market, helping institutional investors to tap into attractive cash flows secured by aircraft according to investor requirements.”

Investec’s team has extensive relationships across airlines and lessors across the world. It has successfully sold more than 95 aircraft, transitioned or released 25 aircraft and has repossession and part-out experience.
