Tailored solutions to diverse asset financing challenges.
A team dedicated to structuring large ticket asset finance transactions in specialist sectors.
The Specialist Asset Finance (SAF) team support our large corporate customers with the structuring of large ticket transactions to finance assets including: rail, helicopters, corporate jets, commercial aviation, sustainable energy generation, data centres, smart meters and equipment (including industrial, infrastructure, transport and many others).
We offer a variety of products including: debt, lease purchase, finance lease and operating lease (with residual value risk), receivables and structured hybrids. Pre-inception facilities for complex projects are also available.
Typically tenor will align to the economic life of the asset. Deal structures vary across the portfolio and often incorporate bespoke documentation and security as well as cross-border/multi-jurisdictional elements.
The SAF team has built a reputation for providing value-add solutions for customers across a wide range of sectors and asset classes.
The teams within SAF are considered sector experts with in-depth knowledge of their respective areas. We tailor transactions to meet customers’ unique requirements and understand that one size most certainly does not fit all when it comes to big ticket asset finance transactions.
