Strategic Value Partners, a global investment firm through funds managed by SVPGlobal, has acquired full ownership of Deucalion Aviation Limited, a global platform with aviation expertise and asset management services. SVPGlobal previously owned a 50 percent stake in the firm since June of 2021.
Deucalion is the manager of over 180 aircraft on lease to over 80 airlines across the globe. The firm boasts a client base including banks, investors, financiers, and lessors. The firm offers a comprehensive aviation skillset with marketing, technical management, finance, and origination professionals.
“Over the last 18 months, SVPGlobal has taken advantage of the dislocation in the aviation market by deploying over $2.5 billion in aircraft-related investments,” commented John Brantl, co-head of SVPGlobal’s European investment team. “With full ownership of Deucalion’s top tier, full-service global aircraft management and investment platform, SVPGlobal’s aircraft investment capabilities will be even further strengthened. We look forward to our continued partnership with the Deucalion team.”
