NCB Capital launches global aviation fund

DUBAI, March 27, 2018

NCB Capital (DIFC), a subsidiary of leading investment firm NCB Capital Company, has announced the launch of the NCB Capital Aviation Fund I with $200 million of commitments raised through a private placement.

The fund holds a majority stake in Peregrine Aviation Topco Limited, an NCB Capital (DIFC) Limited managed vehicle that has acquired an $800 million portfolio of 21 aircraft, said a statement.

The portfolio comprises a mix of narrow-body and wide-body Airbus and Boeing aircraft on lease to 14 airlines across the world, it said.

AerCap Holdings, a leader in aircraft leasing and aviation finance, is providing technical and lease management services. AerCap holds a minority stake in the portfolio, it added.

The fund offers investors exposure to the global aviation leasing industry that provides attractive returns that are uncorrelated with other alternative asset classes.  The industry has proven to be resilient for more than 30 years.

Sarah Al Suhaimi, chief executive officer, NCB Capital, said: “We were delighted to offer this unique investment opportunity to our investors.”

“The fund attracted a large number of investors, highlighting the appeal of this differentiated opportunity. We are committed to offering a robust platform of innovative and diverse investment solutions that meet our clients’ needs,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
