Watson Farley & Williams (“WFW”) has advised Investec Aviation Finance (“Investec”) on its acquisition of a Boeing 787-10 aircraft from Aergo Capital. The aircraft is under a long-term lease to Singapore Airlines. Investec underwrote the acquisition which was supported by debt and equity co-investment from longstanding institutional business partners.

Aergo Capital originally acquired the aircraft, along with a 2019-built A350-900, from Singapore Airlines in 2021. Both aircraft were financed by Shariah-compliant Islamic funding with Dubai Islamic Bank in a transaction arranged by Flying Solutions.

Founded in 1991 and dual-listed on the London and Johannesburg stock exchanges, Investec is an international banking and asset management group, operating primarily in Europe, Southern Africa and the Asia-Pacific region.

Aergo Capital is an aircraft leasing and trading company founded in 1999.

The WFW London Aviation team that advised Investec was led by Global Aviation Sector Co-Head Jim Bell, working closely with Of Counsel Jane Keith, Senior Associate Liam Clozier and Associates Alexander Kyriacou and Fawad Rashid.

Jim commented: “We are very pleased to have supported our long-term partners, Investec, on this transaction”.
