AerLink plans to start the first digital securities financing platform for illiquid, opaque Aviation Asset-Backed Securities (AABS). AerLink will be enabled by the new world of Decentralized Finance (DeFi), specifically, digital asset and securities infrastructure technology. AerLink’s platform will create an alternative financing channel for both primary issuance and secondary market trading of AABS.
AABS issuers, such as aircraft lessors, will benefit in the form of significantly lower costs and faster time to complete issuance. Institutional purchasers of AABS benefit in the form a liquid, secondary trading market. In the U.S., for example, the secondary market for AABS securities is very inefficient with high bid-ask spreads and poor to non-existent price discovery mechanisms. An electronic secondary market would result in transparent price discovery and could also expand the universe of investors in these types of securities broadening the potential base of available capital as an additional benefit to issuers.
