Investment & Industry Advisory

Real estate

The Real Estate rental sector is the asset class most well known by Investors, both by Institutionals and by Individuals. This also makes it the favored means for Banks to develop a relation with their clients

Real Estate is highly capitalistic , like commercial aviation, so these two sectors present a number of common attributes such as :

  1. Long to very long economic useful life
  2. Valuation based on cash flow modelling
  3. Long term macro trend of growth in demand, for air travel and for real estate ownership
  4. Bank debt financing possible on good credits (or locations) to improve net returns

The specific aspect which distinguishes Real Estate from Aviation, is that it’s a highly local market. Therefore requiring local market expertise and data, that Advisors can only bring with local presence

The Aviation sector is highly capitalistic and the players (manufacturers, repair operators, airlines, aircraft lessors) are facing important financing needs over long periods and in USD

Aircraft financing has therefore been at the forefront of financial innovation for a long time, and as soon as the 1970s with the development of leasing and the fundamental separation made possible between an economic user of the Asset (lessee) and legal owner of the same Asset (lessor or investor)

The need for financing is long term and international by the very nature of the Assets involved:

  1. commercial Aircraft have long economic useful lives of 25 years,
  2. Aircraft can be deployed with multiple different operators,
  3. the cash flow generated are long term and predictable and
  4. Supply is relatively stable and defined with only a few manufacturers globally

These characteristics bode well with Investors, who are already aware of Alternative assets such as commercial real estate or infrastructure projects both public and private

Movable Assets are not limited to the aviation sector: logistics (container boxes), shipping of goods (vessels), industrial shipping (oil services, offshore drilling, production, maintenance and storage), rail (passenger cars and more importantly fret railcars and locomotives) are among the sectors with marketable and bankable equipment
