Making perceptive assessments of potential risk factors inherent in diverse aviation assets

IBA's advisory teams ask the right questions to expose aviation risk factors.


Against a backdrop of aviation market turbulence, when margins tighten and concerns over defaults and bankruptcies rise, we support clients to achieve heightened clarity, helping them to understand the risk potential of asset class, age and mix, credit, operational practice, jurisdiction and lease agreement.

Securing Asset Value and Growth through Lessee Risk Transparency

Combining proprietary data from our InsightIQ intelligence platform, desktop data analysis from wide-ranging public sources and our own aviation teams' expert opinions, we inform perceptive decision-making.


Delivering actionable intelligence regarding aviation asset values, financial matters and operators' fitness to preserve asset values, IBA can also clarify the political and economic direction of key jurisdictions and both the likelihood and impact of a default.


Whether assessing a transaction risk, evaluating an investment opportunity, organising the setting up of deposits, rentals and reserves or informing second lease negotiation, IBA's professional analysis delivers clear-sightedness and awareness to support:


  • Higher margins

  • Improved contract terms

  • Reduced risk

  • Better spread of credit


Central to IBA's support is our evolving database of more than 120 airlines globally, against which we research and model to map potential risks including credit, financial performance, fleet composition, operational efficiency and jurisdiction.


We advise clients seeking to assess and optimise current and future aviation asset portfolios, our recommendations touching on expansion goals, exit strategies and risk probabilities and interconnections.


Our risk services include:


  • Operator risk assessments to deliver extensive appraisals of an airline's risk ranking across different areas

  • Credit score index support to contextualise airline risk and operations

  • Credit monitoring facilities
