The way forward in asset and aircraft finance

The world's leading financial institutions, lessees, operators, arrangers and end-users come to our full-service team for innovative and tax-efficient financing structures for aircraft, vessels/ships, rolling stock, mining equipment and infrastructure assets.

Advising on the full range of transactions

We advise on the full range of asset finance deals. In Australia, big ticket financing continues to be dominated by aviation and mining, with Qantas and the Virgin Group taking new deliveries and refinancing their fleet to have access to liquidity and cheaper funds, and with clients like Leighton continuing to finance equipment in ways with innovative funding structures so as to remain competitive in a tight market and to obtain a market advantage.

Globally, the King & Wood Mallesons Asset Finance team have been at the forefront of the international market for many years, working on projects for clients under English law in Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Germany, Brazil, Mongolia, The Philippines and the PRC.
