international-bureau-of-aviationWith the aviation finance community converging next week in Hong Kong for the annual Airline Economics Growth Frontiers and Asia Pacific Airfinance Conference, IBA, a leading aviation advisory firm, has been actively tracking Asian aviation investment trends.


IBA says that while some sectors are experiencing a slowing for Asian, and specifically Chinese, outbound investments –primarily due to uncertainties in financial markets and elections, Brexit and also potentially increased protectionism or concerns over security – aviation seems more resilient. IBA market analysis shows that more deals have been completed in 2016 compared to 2015. A nurturing attitude of outbound investments by Chinese Government policy and an appetite for USD denominated assets have eased the processes and made this possible.


IBA, which has analysed and advised on many of the more prominent transactions in the last 12 months, says that their findings indicate several trends in the Asian aviation investment market:



David Yu, IBA’s head of Asia highlights,”With the market reaching a plateau, never has it been more important to conduct robust due diligence on acquisition targets and its managers and operators by investors. The Asian aviation market continues to drive corporate activity and the emergence of Korea, Japan and other SE Asian countries further adds to the heightened acquisitiveness of Chinese investors that strengthens the region’s position as the sector’s growth driver.”
