Vivek Kaushal Discusses Aircraft Financing with Corporate Jet Investor

On May 20, 2020, Vivek Kaushal, President and Chief Operating Officer of Global Jet Capital, joined Corporate Jet Investor for a one-hour Town Hall online conference to discuss business aircraft transactions and jet financing in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

When asked whether Kaushal had ever modelled the consequences of a global pandemic, he responded: “Our portfolio is built to withstand a lot of stress and we are very conservative as a business. But history is a compass not a map. Nobody really knows when trouble comes. What you do know, after spending 30 years in this business, is that trouble will find you.”

Topics Discussed:

  • Can you still find aircraft finance?
  • How will business aircraft Operating Leases emerge from the crisis?
  • Can you use COVID-19 to pull out of aircraft financing deals?
  • Restructuring and repossessions.

Speakers Included:

  • Vivek Kaushal, President and Chief Operating Officer, Global Jet Capital
  • John Farrish, VP Transactions, General Counsel, jetAVIVA
  • Edward Gross, Shareholder, Vedder Price and a member of the Global Transportation Finance team
  • Eric Lewin, Founder, Global Closing Room
  • Jim Simpson, Senior Managing Director, First Republic Bank
