Will The 737 Max Base Value Change?

IBA has approached aircraft grounding and accident issues in the past from the perspective of investors and considered how residual values could be impacted. IBA’s CEO, Phil Seymour, reviews the 737 MAX’s position and outlines IBA’s long-term view on values. He explains why, over time, Base Value has proven to be a reliable long-term benchmark for narrowbody aircraft.
