Structured financing of transportation assets looks set to take off in Europe, according to a report published by Standard & Poor’s. Monopolistic characteristics and relatively resilient cash flows driven by proven demand have made the European transportation sector one of the most active in the structured financing arena. ‘The overriding rationale driving these transactions is that they allow the owners of the assets to optimize funding structures in terms of cost and size,’ said credit analyst Andrew Christie. ‘The majority of transactions are used to finance the acquisition of the assets, a trend that is likely to continue. As a result, Standard & Poor’s expects increased interest in the structured financing of transportation assets.’
