Intelligent credit investors want more than access to deal flow. LFG provides these investors an opportunity to gain direct access to originated fixed income transactions with transparency and accountability from a robust asset management platform, GA Telesis.
LFG provides aircraft financing solutions to fund the gaps that have become underserved by traditional aviation lenders. LFG provides intelligent, asset-focused lending solutions crafted through the extensive experience, expertise, and technical capabilities of the GA Telesis platform. GA Telesis is a leader in the aviation sector through its multiple business units and airline/lessor/investor networks.
The Leveraged Finance Group will provide secured aircraft financing for airlines, aircraft lessors, financial investors and asset managers seeking alternative sources of debt financing. LFG will focus on mezzanine loans, select senior/uni-tranche loans, and special situations. We will finance in-production aircraft as well as recently out-of-production aircraft, and certain other aircraft engines, and related assets.
LFG fills the funding gap that exists between commercial and investment banks for certain aircraft types and vintages. Broadly speaking, commercial banks, which provide a third of all aircraft financing, are no longer interested in collateral older than 7 years. Meanwhile, investment banks remain focused on significantly larger transactions.
