NEDBANK CIB (AVIATION)
Nedbank CIB is one of the most active aviation banks in Africa with expertise in structuring, arranging and executing high-value transactions. The company finances commercial jets for international airlines, major aircraft lessors, regional airlines and business jets. Loan-to-value ratios vary according to the age and type of aircraft. An analysis of the credit and asset risk is undertaken in determining the structure and pricing for each transaction, relying on a combination of the balance sheet and asset value. For limited-recourse transactions, an equity investment is required to ensure that the parties’ interests are aligned. Lessor companies can be engaged as partners, ensuring the airline is offered an attractive and competitive operating lease.
