In 2012 BNP Paribas confirmed its leading position in Aviation Finance and remained strongly committed to the global industry.

During 2012, BNP Paribas acted as Arranger, Underwriter or Bookrunner of some 35 aircraft finance related facilities on behalf of global airlines and aircraft leasing companies.

The Bank underwrote close to $3 Billion under a wide range of transactions including commercial loans, export credit financing, various tax leases and capital markets structures across all regions.

In line with the Originate-to-Distribute business model that BNP Paribas Corporate and Investment Banking (CIB) is implementing, 84% of the underwritten transactions have been distributed to institutional investors or banks. “This demonstrates our ability to find new solutions to help our clients develop their businesses and support them through varying cycles, and paves the way for new business in 2013 and beyond” says Eric Eugène, Global Head of Transportation Finance at BNP Paribas CIB.

As of January 2013, BNP Paribas also confirmed its number one position in Export Credit Bonds, a growing market segment in aircraft financing and has been awarded Global Leasing Innovator of the Year by Global Transportation Finance.
