Lease pricing dynamics are set to shift in the coming 18 months
Over the past year Goshawk Aviation acquired about $1.8 billion in assets despite intense competition in the sale-and-leaseback and portfolio acquisition markets and having no direct orders with aircraft OEMs. In this interview with Aviation Finance CEO Ruth Kelly speaks about how it achieved this. She reflects on how rising interest rates may affect future aircraft investor sentiment and lessors, with changes in pricing dynamics possibly leading to differences in the sale-and-leaseback and new order placement markets over coming years. She also says pricing may well be influenced by the rising level of aircraft deliveries, particularly in the period 2019 to 2021. She expects that last year's trend of consolidation activity and large portfolio sales will continue this year and says that significant Chinese involvement in aircraft leasing is something that is here to stay.
