Our South African asset finance team comprises finance, corporate and tax specialists. We provide advisory and transactional services to clients for a variety of asset classes and asset-based financing structures. Our team has been involved in several domestic and cross-border asset transactions, including some of the most innovative asset-based deals in South Africa.
We deliver these services through a variety of complex structures, including off-balance sheet operating leases, leveraged leases, export credit finance and asset backed securitisations.
