Here it is, our last Newswatch of 2017!
Looking back at 2017 it really has been a busy year. For us at IBA we’ve had a great 12 months with the launch of our P2F Advisory practice, a new Operator Risk model and recently our new Maintenance and Cost Forecasting Solution -IBA.MC Plus we’ve run some popular workshops in Korea, Dublin and London covering topics such as Aircraft Depreciation, Investing in Aviation, Redeliveries and of course the ever popular Commercial Updates.
Looking ahead to 2018 we would forecast volatility to perhaps increase, given:
- Rising costs across fuel and staff
- The challenges facing LCLH,
- The large swings in GDP growth,
- Geo-political instability
- The potential for more operators to fail
We are planning to hold many more sessions next year starting with our Market Update Webinar on the 17th January, register your interest here. In addition to our regular forecast of orders, deliveries and yeilds for Narrow and Widebody aircraft, we will also touch upon some of the themes listed above. If there are any topics of particular interest, drop us a line and we will look to incorporate them into the session.
If you haven’t seen our iQ data platform recently it’s fast and it’s fully loaded with all commercial aircraft fleet data, including the Lease End dates and values. The valuation processing speed is second to none and the intuitive system makes portfolio updates quick and simple. We will be showcasing iQ at both Dublin conferences in January. At the Airfinance event we will be based around our meeting room (No.11) in the Liffey Room. Do drop us a line if you would like to arrange to meet. If you are not going to the conference you can still contact us through the website for a demo or trial.
Lastly, our thanks and best wishes to all our clients and friends.
Best Wishes and Happy Christmas,
