DMS Europe turns its attention to aircraft leasing

The recent rapid expansion of the aircraft leasing market has left the aviation finance industry looking for corporate service providers to serve the ever increasing use of special purpose vehicles (SPVs). Ireland has long been considered the birthplace of the aviation finance industry and this explosion in demand for corporate service providers to the airline leasing market means that DMS Europe, headquartered in Dublin, is well placed to serve that market.

DMS Europe was launched in Dublin in 2008, originally offering governance services to fund managers. In 2012, DMS Investment Management Services (Europe) Limited (DMS IMS) *became an authorized Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) and UCITS management company approved by the Central Bank of Ireland and passported into Luxembourg. Following on from the success and growth of DMS IMS, DMS Europe has continued to grow and develop a wide range of services to support the financial services industry throughout Europe, specifically to meet client demand. As a result, DMS Corrib, an affiliated entity, became a licensed TCSP in Ireland allowing DMS Europe to support a wide range of structured finance transactions for aircraft lessors.

DMS Europe has seen its existing client base in structured finance expand notably over the last quarter. The dedicated, and recently strengthened team based in Dublin now finds itself at the heart of the market place, able to differentiate from competitors in the form of a complete suite of services. DMS Europe also works alongside some of the largest law firms in Dublin to ensure a seamless and best-in-class solution for clients including; SPV contracts management, treasury services and day to day SPV administration – a comprehensive solution for all aircraft leasing transactions.
