Novus Aviation Capital held a Risk Workshop co-sponsored by
the Korea Development Bank (“KDB”) and Bae, Kim & Lee LLC (“BKL”).
On March 22, 2017, Novus Aviation Capital, in co-sponsorship
with KDB and BKL, held a Risk Workshop at KDB’s headquarters in Seoul Korea.
The workshop was held the day before the inaugural Korea AirFinance Conference
which Novus also held active participating roles.
This workshop was one of many workshops that Novus has
initiated over the years for Korean investors but was unique in that the
workshop was geared to risk & evaluation managers at financial
institutions. Over 60 participants from various financial sectors participated
in this workshop.
The main aim of the workshop was to share a lessor’s
perspective on risk management and BKL to address frequently asked legal
questions related to aviation financing from Korean investors’ perspective.
“We were happy to co-sponsor this workshop as we believe
that these types of events will not only help Korean investors understand
further but also to promote the aviation and aircraft leasing industry,” said
Mr. KJ Yang, Head of Aviation Finance team at the Korea Development Bank.
Mr. Young Joon Cho, Aviation Financing Partner at BKL
commented that “the turnout was exceptional and reflects the continuous
interest in the aviation sector and Korean investors’ keen interest for
searching high quality investment opportunity”.
Novus believes that introducing various topics through
workshops play an integral part of investment decisions made by our partner
investors and plans to continue conducting these types of workshops. “Novus
also holds customized topic events globally, where needed, to promote the long
term interest in the aviation industry,” added Hani Kuzbari, Managing Director
at Novus Aviation Capital.
