The commercial aviation industry is affected and guided by macro-economic and political fluctuations but what factors have and will affect aviation in 2021?

Rob Morris, Global Head of Consultancy, Ascend by CIRIUM


09:40 | Risk Panel

In the wake of COVID-19 where are industry stakeholders on the concept of risk now and how has it changed?

  • Bankers: Do they believe in the asset values put out by appraisers?
  • Lessors: How are they looking at airlines versus 15 months ago?  Are they waiving some requirements of credit-worthiness for their customers?
  • Fund Managers: Do they believe the values that are set forth in recent ABS transactions? Has the current crisis changed their views?
  • Airlines: How have they changed their views on asset risk? How are they navigating the increased participation of Lessors in the market.

What is the future outlook for risk – are there different concerns around risk versus 15 months ago?
