AFIC: Supporting Aircraft Financing
Aircraft Finance Insurance Consortium (AFIC) is a ground-breaking collaboration between Marsh and a panel of highly-rated global insurance companies to offer a new way to protect the financing of commercial aircraft purchases. Developed with Boeing and available exclusively through Marsh, AFIC’s aircraft non-payment insurance (ANPI) fully protects banks or institutional investors from payment default.
The protection provided by AFIC is encouraging new participation in aircraft finance by lenders unable to offer their capital without ANPI. For airlines or leasing companies that are purchasing an aircraft from Boeing, AFIC’s ANPI can reduce the overall cost of financing.
Given the burgeoning growth in air travel, ANPI offers support to this rapidly expanding industry at a time when financing needs are increasing. It is the right product for the right time.
The AFIC team are the proud winners of many awards, including:
AFIC has won Ishka’s Most Innovative Deal 2017 for its support for the Korean Air refinancing. The deal supported the financing of two Boeing 787s and one Boeing 747-8I for Korean Air.
Marsh was awarded the Reactions “Global Achievement of a London Market Broker” for its role in the Aircraft Finance Insurance Consortium (AFIC).
The Airfinance Journal Awards celebrate the achievement, innovation and brilliance within the aviation finance industry; AFIC were honoured to win three awards.
AFIC was awarded the Airline Economics’ “Editor’s Deal of the Year for Innovation” at the Growth Frontiers Dublin 2018 Conference – Aviation 100 Awards Ceremony in January 2018.
In January 2018 Global Transport Finance awarded AFIC “Aircraft Finance Unique Leasing Deal of the Year” and “Aircraft Finance Deal of the Year – Asia” Air.
