Shareholder and Head of the New York Capital Markets group, Kevin MacLeod, was recently quoted in Airfinance Journal’s article, “Dodd-Frank reform: How will aircraft ABS deals be affected?”

The article discusses the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and specifically the new credit risk retention rules for asset-backed securities (ABS) that will come into effect on December 24. In the article, Mr. MacLeod notes that for “aircraft ABS deals with debt securities, the rules will likely apply” and “there will be some pressure on lessors and sponsors to get deals done sooner.”
