  • With a lot of lessors being supported by warehouses and the capital markets yet to reopen; how much can banks support their clients? Will we see an uptick in non-performing loans?
  • What are the changes in pricing and leverage that banks have been seeing in recent months?
  • What are the key features of warehousing facilities being deployed? How have these adapted?
  • How will the transition away from LIBOR impact deals, both new and existing, in the aviation industry?
  • With the Basel IV implementation date set for 1st January 2023, what impacts are we likely to see and is the industry prepared?
