As at 31 December 2016, our Aviation Finance division had a loan portfolio of €8.7 billion (31 December 2015: €7.7 billion). Focusing on the manufacturers, our portfolio shows a slight bias towards the financing of Boeing-manufactured equipment. Narrowbody aircraft remain the dominant aircraft class, continuing our strategy of favouring narrowbody aircraft as they represent the most liquid aircraft type from a security perspective (i.e. ease of remarketing to other operators).
