leasing solutions
Sale & Leaseback
By selling the vessel to ICBC Leasing and then having it leased back, the lessee gains more liquidity than traditional mortgage loans and enjoys the cash returns of the operated equipment.
Operating Lease
By ordering and purchasing vessels according to lessees’ requirements, ICBC Leasing gives a better control over the debt-to-asset ratio and de-facto lowers risks.
Import Lease
Facilitate importer’s payments with de-facto ownership of the vessel. ICBC Leasing's de-jure ownership lowers the insurance agency's risk.
Cross-Border Lease
Lower the rent level by benefitting from preferential tax rates a country may offer. The lease structure is simplified giving you a more reliable right of use while avoiding import/export restrictions.
Combining the lessees’ advantages of the financial and operating lease, allows to share market opportunities, risks and returns equally.
Contract of Affreightment
When packaging a Contract Of Affreightment (COA) in accordance with lessee’s requirements, ICBC leasing acts as a shipyard marketer while significantly reducing Lessee’s fund outflow during ship building.
