Operators and investors in the transportation sector can gain value by accessing many of the specialisms and skillsets within the Centrus team. Asset finance is at the core of many transportation companies’ business, with almost all using one or more of leasing, secured lending or asset-backed structured finance. Derivatives for risk management feature heavily in many transportation businesses, along with the fundamental activities of capital raising and M&A deals. The Centrus team is able to cover all of these services combined with the sector expertise from the professionals within the Transportation team.
Centrus is not aligned nor associated with any financial institutions or manufacturers, and can therefore advise clients with total independence.
The Transportation team operates in three specialist sub-sectors of aviation, rail and shipping, and has arranged or advised on over £40 billion of transactions for transportation assets.
Centrus has expertise in many areas of the aviation finance market – from Boeing 787s to Bombardier Q-series, and from air-ambulances to aircraft production lines.
