Consideration of a possible structure for an Aviation Fund as an investment for regional aviation. The following information has been prepared by Prime Invest for a possible structure for an Aviation Investment Fund for qualified investors with the working title "Diversified Regional Aircraft Investment Fund". It is not a ready-made offer for an investment. Key features such as the legal and tax structure have not yet been determined. Likewise, the individual investment objects have not yet been specifically identified. The term "Diversified Regional Aircraft Investment Fund" is also only a working title.

Assumptions for structuring a Regional Aviation Investment Fund for regional aviation with Prime Invest

  • The passenger aircraft market doubles every 15 years
  • Demand growth independent of regional developments, as there is a huge pent-up demand in emerging countries
  • In the next 20 years demand for 33,070 new aircraft worldwide. This corresponds to 165 new aircraft per month over the entire period
  • Aircraft leasing is increasingly preferred by airlines
  • Regional aircraft market is particularly attractive
  • A high degree of diversification can be achieved by a relatively small investment sum per aircraft
  • Climate-neutral air traffic targeted by 2050, therefore also a sustainable investment
  • Investors participate in a Luxembourg special fund (RAIF, SICAF)
  • Structuring/individualisation of a club deal/individual investment possible
  • Investment objective Regional aircraft:
  •     Large regional aircraft with a seating capacity of 70 to 150 seats
  •     New or young aircraft (0 to 5 years old)
  •     Aircraft types popular with the airlines
  •     Chartering to airlines with a solid credit rating
  •     Long-term leasing agreements with terms of generally 8-12 years
  •     Diversification by aircraft type, airline, region and maturity bands
  • 40-60% leverage at SPV level
  • No running time limit. If the market environment is attractive, the sale of individual aircraft can increase the yield.
  • Investment units can be redeemed once a year with a notice period of five months to the end of the month
  • The target return of the fund is conservatively 8-10% p.a., opportunistically 10-12%,
