A&L Goodbody's (ALG) Aviation & Transport Finance Team have won the 'Best Capital Markets Deal 2017' for its work on Aergo Capital's first asset-backed securitisation. The team acted as Irish counsel on the US$584m securitisation, which is backed by a portfolio of 26 aircraft.
The award was one of just ten global deal of the year awards presented by Ishka, an aviation finance intelligence and consultancy service, at their annual aviation finance festival held in Dublin last week. Commenting on the award, Dickon Harris, Ishka’s Editor, said: “This was an impressive deal that really pushed the envelope with regards to the ABS market. A very hard-working deal team put together and executed a slick securitisation that not only met, but really surpassed, the borrower’s expectations.”
