Rolling Stock

The glob­al growth of the rail­way mar­ket and the fund­ing gap is expect­ed to increase. Rail­way com­pa­nies, fran­chisees and nation­al­ly-owned rail­way com­pa­nies will con­tin­ue to replen­ish and upgrade their rolling stock. More­over, fur­ther coun­tries are sanc­tion­ing the build­ing of new routes to meet the increas­ing demand for alter­na­tive and effi­cient forms of pub­lic transport.

Stir­ling Infra­struc­ture Asset Finance (SIAF) pro­vides the fol­low­ing prac­ti­cal finan­cial struc­tured solu­tions for the leas­ing of rolling stock:

  • Direct Lease: SIAF offers direct lease finan­cial solu­tions on rolling stock that is new or less than twen­ty years old. On behalf of the Lessee, SIAF will source com­pet­i­tive mar­ket terms for the lease of the rolling stock to the Lessee from the insti­tu­tion­al mar­kets. The lease agree­ment would typ­i­cal­ly be struc­tured as an oper­at­ing lease which reduces the upfront deposit required from the Lessee.

  • Sale and Lease­back: SIAF arranges the sale and lease­back of rolling stock. The oper­a­tor can sell its exist­ing rolling stock to the insti­tu­tion­al mar­ket, and the same stock will be leased back to the rail oper­a­tor. This can release funds for the oper­a­tor to allo­cate cap­i­tal more efficiently.

  • Refi­nanc­ing: SIAF also arranges the refi­nanc­ing and equi­ty co-invest­ments for rolling stock.
