African Pilot



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.
