    aircraft leasing

    Aircraft leasing: a promising investment market for institutional investors

    Until recently, aviation as an asset class has hardly received any attention from most continental European institutional investors. It is a different story in the Anglo-Saxon investment community: this investment class has long been established as a component to a well-diversified portfolio.

  • MK5, Munich

    Aviation Markets: H1 2017

    The aviation industry has continued on a very good growth path. Reasons for this include successful efficiency improvement and fleet renewal programmes; the realignment of business models and consolidation processes within the airline industry; and also significant declines in the price of oil since the start of 2015: while the price per barrel recently topped 50 dollars again, oil is currently still cheap in comparison to prices between 2012 and 2014.

  • How time flies: Extracts from the captain’s log of the GOAL team

    Our people are constantly on the move: at on-site technical checks, at purchasing meetings with airlines, at conferences or providing support for KGAL at investor meetings. There is a genuine commotion around the nine-person GOAL team – who act as the asset managers for KGAL’s aviation funds.

  • Interview with an airline pilot: Let that bird fly! Let’s do it, but let’s do it safely!

    When an aircraft takes to the air everyone hopes for it to land again safely, the passengers, the cabin attendants and the pilots – but also the aircraft’s owners. “For us, everything that happens in the cockpit is about safety, and everything in it is there to prevent errors and to detect them fast,” Michael Langer tells us. As an airline pilot he has been flying aircraft all around the world for the last 20 years.

  • Investment strategy: From core strategy to opportunistic investment: Investing in aviation gets more complex

    And the investment doesn’t necessarily have to be in a brand-new airliner or one of the standard aircraft types on the market. Older aircraft or niche models also fly safely – and may even become the highlight in terms of return on investment for an intelligently structured aircraft fund.

  • Investments in Renewables: Survey of Institutional Investors 2015
