Floreat awarded “Aviation ABS Deal of the Year” by Global Transport Finance

Global Transport Finance has awarded Floreat the 2016 “Aviation ABS deal of the year, Europe, Middle East, and Africa”.

The first tranche of the $175m programme issued in December 2016 was listed on the EURO MTF market of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange, with proceeds being used to acquire a portfolio of A330 aircraft on lease to commercial airlines.

The GTF awards are well recognised in the industry and past winners of this category include Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and many other global institutions. The awards are presented for the best deals in the aviation, airports, shipping, rail, road and legal transport finance markets each year.

Oumar Diallo, Floreat Capital Markets, said: “We are very proud to be receiving the GTF award recognising the innovative structure and complex nature of the transaction.

 “We believe this type of product is a first in Europe and see this award as a validation of our strategy of raising capital by bringing new concepts to aviation financing in general.”
