Companies of all sizes utilise asset finance as an alternative to corporate facilities in order to finance the capital assets of their business. The asset finance professionals at Centrus have experience financing a broad spectrum of assets, including the core transportation assets of aviation, shipping and rail but also general plant and machinery and more esoteric assets such as satellites. The Centrus approach is to provide bespoke, customer focussed solutions, tailored to the needs of its clients. Drawing on our wide investor and lender relationships, Centrus delivers added value solutions to asset finance projects. Centrus also provides asset and lease management services to investors wanting exposure to the sector, but without the in-house resources to manage such investments. Centrus is able to manage assets throughout the investment life-cycle, starting with the acquisition, through the financing period and at disposal through re-marketing services.
Structured Asset Finance
Structured asset finance covers a range of financing techniques that go beyond traditional leasing and lending. Capital assets offer funders from different jurisdictions opportunities to deliver enhanced financing solutions based on local tax and accounting rules, often enabling borrowers to benefit from low cost funding or funding that has particular accounting benefits.
Whether structured debt solutions or structured leasing products, the team at Centrus has considerable experience of the techniques involved. Drawing on staff with accounting, banking and legal backgrounds, and its excellent team of financial analysts, Centrus MDT is able to provide a full advisory service in this sector.
The complexity of structured asset finance means that on occasions rules and laws can change that alter the underlying basis of the transaction structure. Centrus MDT can advise clients on the best way to optimise their position upon such changes, and has a demonstrable track record in successfully re-structuring and re-financing complex deals of this kind.
