Global Jet Capital (GJC) has provided more than $3.5 billion in financing to users of new and pre-owned aircraft, a significant milestone for the speciality financer.

Global Jet Capital is recognised worldwide for its singular focus on financing business aircraft and its talented group of experts in this asset class. This focus enables the company to transact quickly and seamlessly on highly complex deals compared to non-specialised lenders.

“Financing business aircraft can be inherently complex, but we've dedicated ourselves to finding ways to address client pain-points and to provide unique solutions,” says CEO Vivek Kaushal. “In particular, our operating lease product helps our clients minimise their capital investment and risk while receiving all the benefits of a dedicated business aircraft.”

The company commenced operations in 2014. GJC added scale and a broad reach in 2016 when it completed the acquisition of GE Capital's business aircraft portfolio. In 2018, it issued the first asset-backed security (ABS) backed exclusively by business jet operating leases and loans. The company has now successfully issued an aggregate of $3.6 billion of ABS notes and has continued its growth and exceptional portfolio management through the unprecedented pandemic period.

“Reaching this $3.5 billion originations milestone is a testament to how we've built the business and reflects an appreciation for our approach to the financing process by both our customers and the market,” adds Kaushal. “We never attempt to fit our customers into a mould. We strive to understand their needs and structure financing solutions to achieve their goals. And we are uniquely qualified to help our clients make well-informed decisions.”
